48 Quilt Blocks from Your Favorite Fabrics
If you are like authors Nichole and Elisabeth, your favorite part of quilting is fussy cutting – and it usually involves figuring out how to enhance an interesting quilt block by framing a favorite element in your most-loved fabric! Let fussy cutting become more than just showing a single design. By following along with how Nichole and Elisabeth create drastically different samplers from each of their 48 unique patchwork blocks, see how those same 9'' blocks can easily be adapted to your own personal taste.
Compare their blocks (and their samplers!) side by side and get inspired to use the fabrics you love to create your own sampler blocks. Learn how to navigate those pesky stripes, how to work with either a limited palette or an eclectic scrappy one, and how to incorporate improvisational piecing to fussy cut even the smallest parts of your favorite designs. Suddenly, you'll see the endless possibilities in your fabric stash and won't be able to resist creating a fussy-cut sampler all your own.
