Wonky log cabin quilt block

This is an improv or wonky log cabin block. I really love this technique. No sizes, just total freedom to cut where you see fit.

This block is perfect for layer cakes.

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.

Double disappearing nine patch quilt block

This is a new type of disappearing 9 patch. There’s a slicing element to it but then it’s built as a nine patch again.

Don’t forget to trim the first 4 pieces as shown on the video.

Quick and easy hexagon quilts – video tutorial

Hexagons are one of my favourite blocks. They’re quick and easy, they can be made with strips of fabric, using a different number of strips, or just a beautiful print fabric.

Check out my hexagons quilt Hexagonal dream. The quilt is 60” x 59 ½”.

The quilt is jelly roll and fat quarter friendly and suitable for confident beginners.

Buy pattern

60 degree ruler is recommended but if you don’t have one you can always use a square ruler with 60 degree markings or the template that comes with the pattern.
