Video tutorial: Half and half HSTs with 10 strips

One modern block, many quilts

This block has so much potential that I have made it twice.

Each block has 4 pieces and you can put it together in so many ways!

This is how I made this block

Fabric needs

  • Ten 10 inch x 1 1/2 inch strips in assorted prints or colours (the scrappier the better)
  • One 10 inch square piece of white fabric

This tutorial makes 4 HSTs which, arranged in different ways, make different blocks. Each block can make one or more quilt layouts.

The pattern contains cutting directions, fabric needs as well as a quilt assembly diagram. The pattern also contains a link to the block tutorial.

Block pieces

The tutorial produces the next 4 pieces that can be assembled into different layouts to make different quilt designs:

Video tutorial: Kaleidoscope quilt blocks

Video tutorial: Kaleidoscope quilt blocks - 2 kinds

These 2 kaleidoscope blocks are quite different.

One is made with foundation piecing and the other one uses 60 degree triangles cut from the same repeat of a strip of fabric.

How to make 2 kaleidoscope quilt blocks

For the kaleidoscope quilt blocks using the stacking method I used just over 2 yards of fabric and got lots of blocks and this is the quilt I made:
