Summer Strawberry:What could be cuter than a strawberry block? This pieced block designed by Konda Luckau would be so sweet to use in a fun summer-themed quilt.
Flutter Wheel: Designed by our past associate editor Eileen Fowler, this gorgeous block is shown here in Bali Batiks from Hoffman California Fabrics. The differences between Eileens batiks are subtle you can make yours as subtle or as bold as youd like.
Butterfly Strings:This beauty was designed by Kay Gentry. The string piecing is done first, directly on the paper foundation. Kay used AccuQuilt GO! die 55014 to pre-cut strips.
