faceted diamonds


It’s funny because just recently I was thinking about the fact that I don’t have too many abandoned quilt blocks (abandoned tops, yes!), and then I came across a ziploc bag with a stack of string blocks I started in early 2012. I always intended to make more, but as it turns out, I don’t really feel like it. So instead I decided to see what I could make out of the blocks I already made.


When I originally sewed up these blocks, I intended the layout to be as shown in this post, but after playing around with them for a bit, I decided I like this layout better, especially if I wasn’t going to make additional blocks.


Now I guess the question is, leave it this size (a decent wall hanging/smallish baby quilt) or come up with some idea to enlarge it without having to make more string blocks (I’m all string blocked out at the moment!). Ideas welcome!

P.S. Want to make some string blocks? You can find my tutorial here!
