The most recent issue of Scrap QuiltsScrap Quilts Summer 2016 – offers two lovely free quilt patterns that we absolutely adore. I’m a Wheel and Life’s Better at the Beach couldn’t be any different from one another, but each have their own sense of appeal. I’m a Wheel is a good example of “less is more.” Simple Four-Patch quilt blocks and Snowball quilt blocks combine to make a bold, graphic design in this throw quilt pattern. Life’s Better at the Beach uses paper foundation piecing to create eight different “beachy” quilt blocks and machine appliqué completes the letters. This is a wall quilt sampler that all beach lovers will want to make.
