Stack, cut and sew log cabin and four patch blocks video tutorial

You can use the stack and cut technique with many blocks. Here I demonstrate a four patch and a log cabin.

Enjoy!

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.

Tote bag tutorial

We learned to do crumb quilting some time ago. This time we’re going to use the crumb quilt pieces to make a tote bag.
