My guild is putting together 8.5 inch square string blocks in brights
for a group quilt.
The organizer asked for 1.5 inch white strips on the diagonal.
She suggested drawing lines marking where that first strip could go,
but I used my iron instead.
I pressed each of foundation blocks diagonally,
and then pressed by white strips lengthwise, right sides together
I nested the strip into the valley of the foundation piece
and sewed on the first bright strip.
Here are the 16 I made for the group quilt.
I stupidly trimmed them from the back,
so in some of the blocks the diagonal isn't in the centre.
Hope the rest of you have fun stringing along.
