Strut Block, February 2017

Asymmetry is featured in many modern quilt designs and is a hallmark of modern quilting. Use of intentional imbalance can lend real interest and uniqueness to a quilt layout. Be it with where the piecing is placed within negative space, or with block or color placement, there are many ways to feature this design element in your quilt designs. 

This month, we’re exploring asymmetry with a block designed by Silvia Sutters of the Washington DC MQG called the Strut block.
