Hello and happy Tuesday! I hope your week is off to a terrific start! I’m stopping in today to share a quick video tutorial for how to make a partial seam construction quilt block. I remember being a bit confused by this technique when I was a newish quilter, but it is really simple and easy.
My Driftwood Drive quilt pictured above uses the partial seam construction technique to put it together. So with our book available for purchase now, I thought it would be fun to film a video showing exactly how to put this block together. This can be a really great project for beginners to make for a first quilting project. Or it is a fun scrappy quilt for anyone to make!
Here are my partial seam construction quilt blocks that I made while filming the video (I needed to make several since I share each step of the process for this technique). Now they are in my Orphan Blocks drawer and will hopefully be put into a quilt top soon!

Today’s video is fast and fun…watch it just once and you’ll have the hang of this easy technique. And then you won’t want to stop making these fun blocks!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Tomorrow I’ll be back to share this week’s Charm Pack pattern! Happy Quilting!
Hi Sherri, I can’t find the tutorial for the partial seams anywhere.
Love my fabric that was in the June Sew Sampler!!!! 🙂
Hi Sherri, thanks for continuing to provide such an informative and inspirational blog! Something I would love to see how you handle, is the corners of projects. I have the same sewing machine as you and I cannot seem to ever get nice neat corners on projects, as it always tends to chew up the fabric & wreck the corner, or the foot & needle gets stuck. I have had this problem when basting 1/8″ around mini quilt projects, hemming napkins, sewing corners of aprons, etc. I have tried some different ideas, but none have helped much and I would love to see how a professional does it!! Many thanks, Kelly

Couldn’t find your video listed on your link for youtube or where you indicated “above” on this email.
I also checked for a video link on your Y.tube channel – while there I watched a couple more video’s and saw I watched your first video 4 years ago 🙂
