Diagonal String

As usual, we quilters seem to have an abundance of strips of fabric lying around. There are always wonderful designs out there to use them up. I chose to use mine in a nine by twelve diagonal string project.

 One block
 In the above 4 blocks, you can begin to see what an interesting design that is developing.
And here you can begin to see the lattice effect.
I think I'll make about 24 to 30 blocks which will put a dent in all those strips hopefully!

Looks great Rhonda. I never thought about stitching them on the diagonal.

Ah fun...you didn't make the blocks square but rectangular! I love it.

Are you piecing onto a foundation or just 'winging it' and then trimming to size?

Cathy said...

are you using used dryer sheets? ♥

Looks great! I like the oblong block and the diamond shapes it makes.

Yes - definitely my favourite block, and your colours are so rich and luscious :) I've made rectangle blocks (on dryer sheets) before - they were used for cage quilts for a local shelter :) Your strip pile won't shrink though, no matter how many blocks you make - that's the best thing about scraps - they self-regulate their population, LOLLLLLLLL!

Love it with the white strip! I made two quilts with this method; one with red center lattice one with blue. They were for my daughter and her best friend for their HS graduation. I love string quilts!
