About this Quilt
Like layers of petals on a rose, the strips in this block surround the center squares. Using a pre-cut collection of 2½” batik strips saves time while also providing the scrappy look in this fascinating throw. The block is assembled similar to a traditional log cabin block, but the rich, colorful batik strips give it a modern flair. Wouldn’t Fractured Flower make a lovely gift for your best friend or favorite family member?
