Whirlwind quilt block - video tutorial

Let’s have a short break from the Mysteries Down Under quilt and let’s make a fun quick block.

This block is also perfect for fabric scraps.

Why not invert the background colour and mix and match the triangles?

There’re lots of different quilt designs on this block. Check out some of the variations at the end of the video.

“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 preorder on Amazon.
