After playing with String Blocks and making several, I started thinking about making a different design with them. Then in a old book that was given to me, I saw a variation on the string square. It is made from a triangle of solid fabric and then so strips over the rest of the square. The one in the book had them just kind of random. It didn't appeal to me at all. BUT it turned on my thinking cap. So I sat and 'played' on the computer. This is the design I came up with.
I like the motion and illusion it creates. The color possibilities are endless.....and imagine using a pattern -say a BIG pattern - for the solid areas. What do you think? If you try this design, let me know. I would love to see it.
Size is up to you...but I see 10 or 12 inch blocks. and adjust the number of squares to suit yourself.
