The finished block is 2″ X 2”.

The finished quilt is 12 1/2″ x 12 1/2″.

This video demonstrates how to put your blocks together into a cute miniature quilt the size of a large block.

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.

Foundation piecing miniature quilting – video tutorial

These mini blocks are 1 1/2″ and 2″ finished. They’re a lot of fun to make. You can use them as magnets or brooches or anything that takes your fancy.

The video demonstrates how to make the blocks with foundation piecing.

In such small sizes I find it’s a lot easier to get an accurate block than using traditional piecing.

On next video we’ll make a quilt with the brooch templates. Stay tuned!

But first let’s make the blocks!

How to make a finished 1 1/2″ and a 2″ miniature block

Foundation piecing paper

I used regular copy paper but you may find it to be a bit thick.

You can use special paper for foundation piecing if you prefer.

Foundation paper ruler

Note: I recently started to use an Add a quarter ruler, the yellow ruler in the video, after some followers recommended it and I have to say it’s a true time saver.

I was very lucky to receive an AccuQuilt GO! with an 8″ Qube and Eleanor Burns Quilt in a Day book of patterns.

I had considered purchasing one for a while but I was undecided. Having used one I really like it. It’s fast and accurate which makes it a joy to use.
