Strip Piecers' challenge quilt

We're making string blocks for our monthly challenge
at my guild, the Strip Piecers.

These blocks were inspired by my basement bathroom floor.
It evokes diagonal string blocks and horizontal strings.

So far we're liking this layout, with the borders being half the width
of the diagonal blocks.
The diagonal blocks are 6.5 inches unfinished,
sewn on a 6 inch foundation,
with half lights and half mediums.

This is meant to be a charity quilt for a women's shelter.

Isn't it fun too find quilt inspiration in odd places? What a great string quilt. Love the value arrangements you made with this one.

HI Rosa,

We love this pretty pattern and the bright, cheerful colors. It was very creative of you to get inspiration from the design of the floor. That geometric pattern will make a lovely quilt. What a wonderful donation to charity.

Best wishes, and happy quilting

Marina and Daryl
