Your First Sampler Quilt

Have you caught up with the last 2 blocks of  the Sampler Quilt. Block 8 – Pinwheels is a useful little block to learn which is created very simply from four half-square triangle units. The block can be used in all sorts of quilts and in all different sizes – which are easy to calculate since you use 4 of them. And you do need to pay attention to the way the wheels spin – they should all spin in the same direction – but hey-ho you could decide that its a design feature if they don’t Watch Now +

The final block is Block 9 – Log Cabin – four little blocks to make up the centre of your quilt; Simple to make from four smaller blocks;  the colour change of two and two is optional but adds more interest. Valerie shows you how to strip piece two of these blocks at the same time which speeds up the process.  Watch Now +
