This week in the Modern Quilt Block Series we are sewing Focus – combining special prints in this geometric block yields some fun results! Let’s take a closer look – and start sewing.
While selecting fabric for this block, I pulled a navy print and opted to use a bright green for a background fabric. As long as you have enough contrast for the shape to come forward, any combination of fabrics would be fun in this block. And there is a lot of room to play with favorite colors and fabrics. The contrasting fabrics are small enough pieces that this would be a great scrap project too.
What is your favorite block combination? I get excited every time I find a new striking group of blocks. Simple quilts are beautiful when made with love, and I encourage you to simplify your plans and gift the quilt that you love making. Are you making quilts for the holidays?
This week the Focus block is free, next week it will be available for purchase in my shop.
