FREE Video - Hole in the Barn Door Quilt Block
by The Crafy Gemini

This video tutorial is a wonderful walk-through for this block type (also known as a Churn Dash block) and beginners especially will enjoy the clear instructive style of The Crafy Gemini.  This video is part of a series she did for twelve blocks.  She also, very thoughtfully, provided the supply list and cutting instructions.  More from The Crafty Gemini:

"This is Block #5 of a 12- block video quilt along series. Every few weeks I will post a video tutorial on a new quilt block. At the end of the quilt along you will have completed 12 blocks (each measuring 12" x 12") and then I will post videos showing you how to sew them together and also how to finish the whole quilt.

"This block only requires 2 different fabrics and is the perfect block for a beginner to start practicing matching up intersecting points when piecing quilt blocks together.

"If you would like to follow along but are not confident with your sewing or quilting skills I suggest you watch this video first."
