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.

You can order on Amazon.

Two elegant quilt blocks

These are two of my favourite blocks: garden fence and windmill cathedral window block.

I love blocks with narrow white strips like this one. It’s a quick and fun block to make. I also love fabric manipulations and this windmill block is easy enough and quick enough. It can get a bit bulky.
