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.

You can order on Amazon.

English paper piecing (EPP) tutorial

If you’ve never done English paper piecing or EPP this is an easy project to start with.

For this I printed a few sheets of 1 inch hexagons (pdf), but if you prefer to start with larger pieces, you can use up 1 1/2 inch or 2 inch hexagons. You’ll find those two sizes on the pdf download as well.

This mini quilt is 29 inches wide.

English Paper Piecing: megahexagon of hexies or improv EPP

This is my new English paper piecing project that I started without any planning – a lot of my quilts and projects start this way -, as something to do while I watched TV and just seeing it grow, and watching where it took me.

For this I printed a few sheets of 1 inch hexagons (pdf), the same size as my Scrappy flower quilt, still in progress.
