Top 10 quilting video tutorials of 2016 - Sewn up, TeresaDownUnderI posted over 60 videos last year.

Below are the most popular ones based on number of views.

Next time I’ll post my favourite 10.

1. Tumbling blocks without Y seams

While I just posted my number 1 video a couple of weeks ago and the views aren’t near as high as number 2, I can say Tumbling blocks was the best received video of the year and that’s why it’s up there as number 1.

These two blocks are quick and easy to make.  Both are made in a similar way but the blocks are slightly different.

How to make variation 1 of the buzz saw block


You may find that if you cut your strips at 2 1/2 inch intervals, the last strip will be less than 2 1/2 inches. You can see that on the video. That’s because the half square triangle is 9 1/2 inches square not 10.

That doesn’t affect the end result. Just sew the narrower strip with a scant 1/8 inch seam allowance to compensate a bit.
