Octagonal, square and corner in 3 quilting patterns + 1 blank.

to view creative ideas using these designs.

These blocks are so quick to make, use very little thread and all done in 1 hooping.
Each octagonal block has a 1/4" binding around the edges, done using the stitch 'n' flip method,
There quilted and backed, so once completed there is no other work to be done apart from
joining to another block. This is when the opening is sewn up. You can use a zigzag or
fancy stitch to join the blocks.
Only if you do single blocks as I have done for the coasters & pot holder
will you need to either hand or machine stitch the opening closed.
These are stitched directly onto your fabric, so no other stabilizer is needed.
The back of your project looks just as good as your front, so table runners can become reversible.

Endless projects can be made with these designs, from table runners, placemats,
bags, cushions, quilts, machine covers & so much more.

Easy to follow, step by step photo instructions are included in a PDF file.
