My quilting group met last evening, and everyone brought their completed strip pieced squares for my challenge, as presented in September. Everyone was to make at least 8 diagonally pieced blocks, and aren't they all fabulous? It was so fun to lay them all out and see patterns emerging.
I don't know yet if I will make one quilt or 2 smaller quilts with all these blocks. The local children's hospital accepts quilts of all sizes, from a small square for a newborn to a twin size, so there is lots of flexibility if I decide to make a charity quilt for them.
And on with the fun.....first we laid all the blocks randomly (so colourful!):
then we grouped them in blocks of 4 to make diamonds of one colour:
and then we played with them in diagonal rows of each colour:
Most people in my group seemed to prefer the 4 block diamonds. Whatever I decide, I can always make more blocks to fill in the colour gaps.
Which arrangement do you prefer, or do you have another idea for an arrangement?
