Disappearing four patch quilt block video tutorial

Today I’m back at making another disappearing quilt block. This one is a less known disappearing four patch.

If you’re worried about matching corners – disappearing methods can be not so accurate- you can then add sashing between blocks.

I used Haerae Designs Studio 100% GOTS certified organic cotton printed with low impact dyes. I love the beautiful fabrics by this fabric manufacturer.

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.

Black peaks video tutorial

Today we’re making a modern block that has many possibilities. And I’ve chosen a black and white colour scheme because it’s always a great combination.

This will also work well with white and red, pink and green, black and red, even a red and green Christmas combination.

Enjoy!

Half rectangle triangles video tutorial

It seems to me that half rectangle triangles are the poor cousin of half square triangles but you can make wonderful blocks with them.

Check out my tutorial on how to make half rectangle triangles.

I don’t have any formulas to make the HRT smaller or larger but it can be started larger or smaller and adjusted. Just tested out!
