Gingham quilt block – video tutorial

Gingham quilt block video tutorial

I love gingham, and I love gingham quilts.

The trick to a gingham block is to choose the colours well. You will need a colour in 3 shades, a dark, a medium and a light colour. Choose single colour fabrics with good contrast.

Solids work more effectively though some tone on tone prints may also work well.

In the tutorial I make 2 different sizes but the block can be made in any size.
