3404: Mother’s Choice


There’s more than one way to construct a quilt block! On this episode, Angela Huffman joins Sara Gallegos to explore the different methods for constructing a classic quilt block called Mother’s Choice. Build the block using fussy-cutting, cornerstones, triangle-squares, stitch-and-flip piecing, or mitered corners. Learn why you might pick one technique over another for this skill-builder quilt block.


The quilts featured on this episode were all originally published in Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting March/April 2019
issue. They include Table Manners by Natalie Crabtree, Providence by Jen Daly, and Mother’s Best by Reed Johnson. We talked about their construction techniques here, and Angela even came up with a mitered corner approach that we feature exclusively on the show!


These are all the same quilt block! Color placement and technique can change so much!

Angela used fabrics from the Let’s Be Mermaids collection by Riley Blake to step out the many ways you can construct this block.
