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.

These 2 techniques are for quilt-as-you-go without sashing. After using both I can’t really choose my favourite. Both work great.

Quilt as you go made modern

I received a copy of Quilt-as-you-go made modern by Jera Brandvig.

While I have tried some of the QAYG techniques before – see video below – the book is very thorough  and detailed. Jera not only describes the technique but she also offers alternatives to the basic block by block quilting.

The book also has lots of diagrams that make it particularly easy to follow the patterns.

To top it all up you get to try the techniques in 13 different projects.
