Top 5 Patchwork Projects

Patchwork is the easiest way to use up your stash of fabric scraps. You can use all the special pieces you have been saving to make a beautiful quilt to adorn your home, or present to a loved one. We’ve put together our top 5 blocks to help you on your way to quilting glory!

Pinwheel Block

This design reminds us of summer. Make it in bold colours for a dramatic effect.

Ohio Star Block

This style would look great alternated with the pinwheel design. Use fresh florals or soft hues to create a whimsical feel.
