I made these string pieced blocks today. I think they're way fun! I'm doing these in "quilt as you go" style (except - oops - forgot to add backing!!)
Here's what the block looks like before trimming - they clean up nice, don't they? I keep a basket of 2 1/2" strips and "not 2 1/2" strips - I used the "nots" for these blocks.
What about THIS mess??!! Can these blocks be saved? I thought the strip/solid mix was a great idea - but it's not looking good so far! But ... I suspect that creative quilting will save the day! (That and a terrific border!)
