Settings for String-quilt Blocks

Remember my pile of 100 plus string-quilt blocks made during my quilting retreat?

I’ve been looking at different settings for these blocks.  Here’s an interesting one from a quilter whose name I have totally lost on Bonnie Hunter’s Open Studio Facebook site–and I apologize for that as she designed this setting.

There’s a ton of work in this setting, but it’s making a terrific quilt.  I think I’m going to do something a bit different though….  I’m playing around with some sort of double lattice with cornerstones made with very bright colors–like aqua, fern green, orange, red…

Rosie Pilkerton was working on a different version of a string quilt–one that makes it’s own lattice as you leave a set width of your underlying fabric foundation square (the pale yellow here) free and start your strings on either side of that central diagonal stripe:

VERY nice, Rosie.
