17 blocks.......

I have been sewing a few strips onto blocks now and then so last night I made an effort to get more blocks up to the 15.5" size.  I was going to make 24 blocks which would make a 60" x 90" quilt but now I'm thinking maybe 20 blocks for a 60" x 75" will be enough.  I'm thinking large lap quilt for this one.  I guess my layout will determine the number of blocks that it needs.  If I stay with this type layout, 20 will be enough.

This really looks good. Different twist to scrappy log cabin. Chris

this looks amazing in the little preview photo -- from a distance all those strips give a great effect.

What a beautiful lap quilt this will make! Where ever it goes, they will never get tired of looking at all of the color combinations. Many of the possible layouts are great, but I think this is my favorite.

This is one of my all time favorites. I've made two, but after seeing this one I think I might need to make one more!!

Love, Love, Love this quilt. When you say that you have sewn strips onto your block, Is this Foundation piecing? BEAUTIFUL!

Elaine said...

Love the look of this and the idea that it was made of such small strips of fabric!

LOVE this layout - the zig zag was awesome, but this one really sings for me.

Kim said...

Oh wow this is so cool, what a great looking quilt it will make no matter the size you decide on!

Nicely done!
Happy Sewing

This has so much impact! And to think....a lot of quilters would throw these small stings away. Thanks for proving there is beauty in the smallest pieces of fabric! Stunning!

The layout is probably my favorite. I love the dimensional look it has.

Really pretty. Really.

Like the way this one radiates with this setting. What a neat way to use up those long strings and strips a person gets when squaring up fabrics. P.S. I still like the fractured quilt in the reds/greys---but the other one does have a certain zing to it!!! I have the book now & the weather is starting to cooperate for sewing inside more!! Have a Happy Halloween
