I'd love to introduce you to one of my newest creations...
Introducing my free Quilting Block & Unit Reference Guide! 🥳
This beautiful beginning quilting reference guide will assist new and beginning quilters in being able to more clearly see the parts and pieces used to make quilts. As almost every quilt can be broken down into one or more blocks, each block can also be broken down into smaller units, most of which are at a level even beginning quilters can recreate.
A side note: there are a few units I’ve listed that are more advanced, like the Drunkard’s Path (curved piecing) and the Half Rectangle Triangle, for example, but I wanted to include them as there are only fifteen total units that make up quilts 😃.
The units are organized in alphabetical order by name of unit. As a reference guide I wanted for you to be able to refer back to it and find what you’re looking for quickly and easily. And, to be honest, I’m a little neurotic when it comes to organization… if it doesn’t make sense in some logical way it drives me a bit nuts 🤪. Lol! 😂
A bonus to this quilting reference for more experienced quilters and those wanting to create their own patterns is the visual breakdown and usage cues that can be used to design your own patterns. Patterns can be as simple as mixing a couple units to see what you come up with, more complex by adding more units to create more visual art, creating multiple blocks to blend together into a quilt and so much more! Graph paper is your friend in these instances.
So no matter your level of quilting I hope you can find the Quilting Block & Unit Reference Guide a valuable tool.
And I would truly be honored if you’d share this blog with a friend who is interested in quilting! I’d love to be able to help guide them on their journey as a new quilter.
Warmth & Love,
