My Monday night sewing group are having a simple challenge. We were all given 1 mt of fabric to use as much or as little as we like, but we have to use it in a quilt suitable for donating to our local hospital. This is something we do on a regular basis - sometimes it may be Quilts of Love for the very tiny prem babies, or Christmas quilts for the kids, etc. My piece of material was a bright blue and I thought this would look good using some of my strings that I have an abundance of.
Having decided on the size of the blocks (finished 12 in) I then chose to do a pattern that looks like flying geese.
I then made 4 string blocks (finished 6 in) and then sewed them to the blue squares creating two sets of triangles.
The finished blocks were then sewn together. All that is left now is to put on a border, quilt then bind off.
