I couldn’t sleep so I was playing on EQ thinking I could combine my Half Square string quilt with my Baby Stripes and Linda’s zig zag setting. I was trying to come up with an easy string quilt that is pieced on a muslin foundation with half the block just being the muslin foundation. So I would only be adding strings to half the block.
For my first quilt, I just modified my EQ drawing of my Half Square strings – those blocks are smaller than the HeartString blocks so the setting is 8×10 blocks – adding a red center like the HeartStrings blocks – and I felt it needed borders.
Then I started thinking about what if I made part of the blocks with a blue half so I’d have a built in border when I assembled them and that was version 2.
Finally, I thought I’d make fewer blocks and make them the same size and setting as the HeartString blocks and this was version 3.
I was going to use a lightweight fusible interfacing for my next string quilt foundation but if I decide to try this quilt I’ll stick to the muslin.
