String Strip Quilt Top -2010
Started this last month by sewing strips diagonally on plain fabric 13 x 13, then trimming a 12" square into four 6" squares, sewing them together to form another 12" square. This is a first for me and used up a lot of patience doing it. It is not finished as it need a border on it and then a backing (no batting) then I will stitch in the ditch around the blocks. I wanted something light thus the no batting inbetween. I love all the colors and it is a no brainer and goes fast. You use up a lot of scraps also. I enjoy instant gratification which this does. Being a novice at quilting of any kind I think this is called a string strip top. If anyone knows a different name for it please let me know.
