Quilting Challenge

This month it was my turn to present a challenge to my quilting group (myself included). Since our group calls itself the Strip Piecers, I thought it would be fitting to do strip pieced blocks. I've asked everyone to make 6" blocks using one colour per block, like these:

It will be a surprise to see how many of various colours are made, and how they will all fit together. You can see a few here if you look closely, and on the banner on Brenda's blog. It's a lot of fun to use up your scraps this way, and highly addictive!

And here's the block I made with my fabric. It's not quite as random as the others, but a similar style.
