Supplies Used in the Video

Grab a copy of my book,

A Life With Quilts

-Featuring five quilt patterns, throw to twin size. -Most of the pattern are scrap and fat quarter friendly. -All patterns are for all skill levels. -Includes methods and tips for choosing fabrics, finishing a quilt and personal stories.


  • Be sure that you are pressing, not ironing. Ironing can warp the blocks and leave them with wavy edges, which makes it harder to sew together accurately.
  • Starch is your very best friend! It makes achieving precision easier! I am a firm believer that you can’t use too much.
  • If you don’t have time to sew all these in one setting, don’t! Do a few each day and break it up into several sewing sessions. YOU are the setter of your pace!

For me, block making is when all the work you’ve already done starts paying off! Time to relax at your machine and piece, piece, piece!

You saw me go from machine to pressing mat over and over again in the video (which I like bc it gives me breaks from sitting), but you might be on your feet more than me or need additional chill time. If that’s the case consider getting yourself a pressing station next to your machine. They make smaller wool mats and mini irons if space is limited.
