Josh's Wiggles & Teeth

Josh here for some wiggles and teeth. Before we jump in to the video, have you checked out our quilt shop lately? Currently all of our download books and videos are 25% off for our St. Patrick's Day sale. We've decided to extend the sale for the rest of the week.

So if you haven't joined our Building Block Quilt Along, now's the perfect time!

Now let's get to Wiggles and Teeth.

This block gives you a nice mixture of straight lines and curves, so you get the best of both worlds when it comes to practice. No travel stitching to speak of or anything technically challenging, so this is a great block for beginners.

The tall and short U-shapes are also excellent primers for getting control over the much more tricky spirals.

Here is how wiggles and teeth looks when finished...

One last note... if you haven't joined us on our BBQA facebook group, please check out our community. There are quilters all over the world taking part and getting to know each other.

Until next week, let's go quilt!



  1. I noticed when Josh said he messed up a bit, each time his hands were pretty far back on the base of the sewing machine. Maybe he needed to stop and reposition his hands a bit sooner than he did, since once he did that, he did fine again. I love watching Josh doing his videos. It shows I can really improve just as he is improving. Thanks so much Josh.

  2. I agree with your comments. I love listening to Josh because he is so relaxed about the mistakes he makes. Unlike me - I tend to castigate myself a lot, which does not help. Keep on stitching Josh!
