How to make 2 tulip blocks

2 tulip quilt blocks video tutorials

This week I’m revisiting 2 favourite foundation quilt blocks. I like them so much that I’ve used them in 3 of my quilt patterns.

Watch how to make these blocks with foundation piecing:

Both blocks can also be made with traditional piecing. The traditional templates come with the Tulip factory pattern.

My book Turnabout Patchwork

“Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.

Buy individual chapters of my book

Now that my publisher is going out of business I have bought the rights to publish my book. Now you can download individual chapters. Each digital download is a bundle with 4 quilt patterns in it.

As well as the instructions and fabric needs to make the blocks you’ll find a section on quiltmaking basics at the end of the pattern that discusses:

  • Tools
  • Squaring up blocks
  • Borders
  • Assembly and quilting
  • Binding

See all the quilts in the book in a real life project
