If you’ve never done English paper piecing or EPP this is an easy project to start with.

For this I printed a few sheets of 1 inch hexagons (pdf), but if you prefer to start with larger pieces, you can use up 1 1/2 inch or 2 inch hexagons. You’ll find those two sizes on the pdf download as well.

This mini quilt is 29 inches wide.

From 5 fabric strips to quilt block video tutorial (Hidden wells)

Vídeo tutorial: make a block out of 5 strips of fabric

A while ago I made a similar block with 4 fabric strips of the same width. This time I tried with 5 fabric strips of different widths and this is one of the blocks I got.

The choice of fabrics is important. It works best with high contrasting fabrics and colours.

Order 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.
