Best-selling author Carol Hopkins is back with her sixth book, revealing a big twist—big quilts! You’ll love learning how Carol uses her signature Civil War color palette in larger quilts, each more stunning than the last.

Fourteen lap-sized-and-bigger quilt patterns pay tribute to Southern belles, men’s work shirts from the Civil War era, First Lady of the United States Mary Todd Lincoln, and more. Interesting tidbits about nineteenth-century life round out this stunning collection that will inspire you to think big!


Turnabout PatchworkTurnabout Patchwork
Simple Quilts with a Twist
Teresa Mairal Barreu

Start with a simple block. Slice, turn, and sew slices back together. Then watch the magic happen! It’s hard to believe that these quilts can come from such simple-to-sew blocks, but turnabout techniques transform even the most basic blocks into showstopping quilts.

Each chapter focuses on a single block—just follow along to sew, slice, turn, and sew again. Find several design options for each block, along with a total of 23 quilt patterns, so that you can make lap quilts, runners, and more with the turnabout blocks you create.
