Stack and cut layer cakes – video tutorial

I’m working with Michael Miller Collection Fairy Frost Metallic again, this time with a set of layer cakes.

I like pre-cuts because I get to play with all the fabrics in one single collection and all the fabrics tend to go well together.

See an alternative and classy colour scheme with this collection in creams, greys and blacks.

Stay tuned for a table runner I’m going to make with this easy modern block.

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.

Split star quilt block – video tutorial

I came across this great tutorial for a split star by Stash Bee and I couldn’t resist putting it to work.

This tutorial not only teaches you how to make this great block but also it teaches you to make half square triangles and flying geese at the same time. It’s certainly a skill booster.

  • Michael Miller’s Cotton couture in purple
  • Tula Pink’s Hipnotized circles in Sorbet.

Broken dishes quilt block with layer cakes – video tutorial

Is it too early for a Christmas quilt?

Since lock down every day feels like a week and every week like a month.

Today I have a classic block which is perfect to make a quick quilt.

The demo uses pre-cut 10″ squares, also called layer cakes, from the Michael Miller Collection Fairy Frost Metallic. In red and green this would make a great Christmas quilt.

See an alternative and classy colour scheme with this collection in creams, greys and blacks.

Check out all the variations for this block at the end of the video.
