Carolyn Perry Goins knew that quilters needed patterns to showed off the amazing fabrics they have collected but was simple and quick to make. A pattern that could look funky or sophisticated, modern or traditional. So she invented a new quilt block! Used with various settings, sashings, value contrast, and thoughtful layout, this block will suit everyone's style. And she offers the block in 4", 6' 8", 10" and 12" !
Goins book The Fiona Quilt Block offers fourteen projects, each with a full color photo of the block and the completed quilt, fabric needs, and illustrated step-by-step instructions. A photo gallery of quilts using the block and resources are included.
I really liked the project Woven Rust! It inspired me to use pink, white and black fabrics I bought two summers ago.
