Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Piece quilt blocks

Pattern Description:

Like magic, the unique technique explained in this pattern gives you the blocks to make two quilt "tops" at once. Use one for the front and the other for the back to make a reversible quilt, or make two separate quilts. No wasted fabric, no exposed biases, and no hand-sewing.

Full instructions are included for piecing both pictured sizes, throw and wallhanging. Several other block-layout suggestions are provided, making Slash/Backslash a versatile pattern you'll use again and again.

The pattern is delivered as a PDF file, with an 8-page instruction booklet on 8 1/2" x 5 1/2"; pages (print two on one standard letter page, or view on your PDF-compatible e-reader/tablet). US measurements are used throughout.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 54" x 72" throw
  • 36" x 36" wallhanging


  • See cover image (two sizes offered in pattern; materials differ for each)

You Will Also Need:

  • Removable marking tool compatible with your fabric
