Today I am playing with settings for my latest string blocks. First I used a dark blue string for the middle with narrow WOW on either side. I saw on someone's blog (sorry--I can't remember WHERE) they sewed them on the diagonal with another square of fabric (like HST's--I used a shirting type fabric). Now I am trying to figure out how to set them together.
I really like where the blocks form an "X", but then there are these large areas of plain shirting fabric--boring! And the pinwheel type setting, now that I like. Lots of movement, and the stripes in the middle of the blocks still stand out. This quilt will be set 6x8, so let me know what you think.
I haven't gotten any quilting done, I am waiting to try some new pantographs that haven't arrived yet. I LOVE new pantographs!
