Quilting homework

In quilting class, we're doing "strip" quilting. (above) That's what I should be working on...and I will. But Denise introduced something else to us last week. She is doing one with an orange stripe in the center of each block and it just reminded me so much of the upcoming season that I wanted to do one too!

My main strip is yellowish-gold and I'm using black too, so it's kind of Halloweenish. It's called "string" quilting. What you do is cut irregular strips and just sew them on, in any haphazard order. Oh, and they're sewn right on your paper template, which is removed when you are done. It's just too much fun!

It reminds me of those strip papers we made in class (serendipity squares?). It looks great!

Wonderful! Such a fun look! I love the way it pulls the eye all around the block!

I agree with Doris, those colours look so good together, warm and fun.
