Red and Green Strings in Rectangular Blocks

I prepared a red and green string quilt as a project for our Possum Town Quilters.
Using an old algebra book for foundations we placed a yellow strip diagonally in each block with
red on one side and green on the other side.

How attractive. The yellow and black & white set the greens and reds off perfectly.

You can never go wrong with red and green and some yellow! Wonderful blocks and good use of an algebra book if you ask me!

Lovely! I especially like the two vintage machines your friends are sewing on -- the Singer FW and the Bernina.

In the second pic the yellow stands out so well, like a picture frame. Can't wait to see the entire green diamonds also.

Nice! That bag is interesting. I'm not sure I could use one like that -- my purse is usually such a breeding ground for debris! But this one looks great1

Oh my goodness this quilt looks like so much fun! I just love the vibrant reds and the striped green fabric you used. It feels like watermelons.
