  • Color Bars: Traditional Courthouse Steps quilt blocks take a modern turn when pieced with bright and neutral batik fabrics. All block patches are cut from jelly rolls fabric strips, making preparation a breeze. Not into batiks? Make your own version of this strip quilt pattern from any two contrasting groups of fabrics!
  • Sugar, Sugar: The strip piecing technique makes the 20 blocks in this lap quilt pattern super fast to sew.
