Cheryl made Boxed Pinwheelfrom foundation piecing and Robert Kaufman Kona Cotton Solids fabric. The sharp contrast resulting from the solid fabric gives this block two-dimensional appeal.

Conversation Hearts is like one of those Valentine’s Day boxes of stamped candy hearts. You know, the ones you sort through to find ‘the right one’ to give a friend? Kelli created the special messages for hearts with fabric. Can you tell what kind of fabric she used?

Foundation piecing expands the possibilities of block designs. Amy takes on a creative edge with her block Jagged by joining two foundation sections. She made her sample block with her own fabric design, Improv by Amy Friend for Contempo, a division of Benartex Fabrics.

You can just see the icicles form in Mary’s Icy Blast design. It’s another example of the fun things that can happen with foundation piecing.

Can you figure out how Laura made her block? It almost looks like she created a pieced background and then sewed an open square on top of it in Skyscraper. This is one unique block design to check out.
