Step by step instructions with colour photos in a 68 page booklet:

This is a quilt that explores texture in fabric. The quilt builds on the skills I acquired while doing my first textured quilt sampler.

This quilt has 16 x 10 1/2 in blocks.

Block type: 4-patch.

Block size: 10 1/2 inches.

Colour scheme: reds, greens and creams. The fabric manipulation is made in a cream fabric or ribbon.

The quilt is made with fabric scraps and ribbon and therefore the tutorial does not include exact fabric needs.

Textured quilt sampler

This is my first quilt exploring texture in fabric. It has 25 different fabric manipulations and all blocks are log cabin blocks in a white and red scheme.

Would you like to make this quilt? All textures have been explained in a tutorial.


  1. This would make an interesting wall quilt. I am working on ideas for a memory quilt but don’t have much fabric, mostly a few T-shirts and some netting.
    I love ideas and your fabrics.


  2. Just beautiful! I’m going to try these ideas AFTER
    the holidays. I have several projects in the works
    already for gifts.
