Zest.  That's the perfect word to describe Lissa Alexander's talent for mixing color, pattern and styles of fabric in quilts.  The scrappier, the better. 

Lissa Alexander's Fabric for BH3

Lissa shared a few tips on how she pulls fabrics for a scrap quilt in her blog post for Block 1 of Block Heads 3.

With these fabrics, you'll definitely want to see what she used for her Zest block - Block 7 of Block Heads 3.  The instructions are on Lissa's blog - ModaLissa.

It can be made in four sizes - 4", 6", 8" and 12" finished. (A few designers have even made 2" finished stars so be sure to check the blogs.)

This is the fabric mix Lissa used for Block 3 - Crown And Star by Betsy Chutchian.
