I hope you’ve discovered Quiltmaker’s Block Network. It’s a tremendous free resource for quilters.
Each episode features a free block pattern from Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, but also highlights a particular technique. You may find a new way of doing something that will prove to be useful.
Learn to sew partial seams with Denise Starck in this week’s new episode, Change It Up. Partial seams sound scary but they are actually very simple and they allow you to create some interesting designs that would otherwise require a set-in seam.
Denise uses Entwined Squares by Moira McSpadden for Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 7 to showcase the technique, and also gives ideas for what else could fit in the center area.
Reinforce your learning by watching partial seams with Carolyn Beam as she makes May Flowers from Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 2.
This is the cutest block and it’s perfect for spring.
June Dudley’s three-dimensional triangle-squares have so much potential. She uses them in her Apple Tree block from Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 7.
There is so much to learn on Quiltmaker’s Block Network.
