Water and fire quilt pattern

Today I start a series of budget patterns.

The patterns contain all the necessary fabric needs and instructions to make a full quilt in one single size.

How to make the two blocks that make the Water and fire quilt

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.

Video tutorial Triangle in a square quilt block

This tutorial is for a paper piecing block. Regular templates are also available below.

This is the perfect block to start paper piecing and make blocks with perfect points with no effort.

I use printing paper but you can use phone book paper or any other paper you have available. The thinner the better.

Use a shorter stitch setting so it’s easier to remove the paper at the end.

Sewing strips and slicing them sheds very different blocks as you can see from my chapter Coordinated strips.

There are so many variations possible  that I could have written a full book of patterns with just this block.

You’ll find this table runner and the 2 other quilt patterns with this block in Turnabout patchwork.

So you can see all the variations in a real project we’re joined by Afton of Quilting ModLinda of The Quilting BikerBrandy of Pampered PettitLeanne of Devoted Quilter and Andy of A Bright Corner
