Stringing Colors - Here's a Sample

My friend, Lola, accepted the invitation to participate in Stringing Colors and already put together this quilt! Yes, she went a little overboard (you're invited to make SIX blocks to donate toward our mission quiltmaking effort), but isn't the finished top just lovely?

For her two-color blocks she chose lavenders and purples to go with neutrals. And I know that all the fabrics came from a stash donated to Hope Quilters at Lutheran Church of Hope. See what you can do with leftover, and even ugly fabrics?

Also, Lola's layout is just one of many ways these blocks can be arranged. At a yet-to-be-schedule sewing day at WDM United Methodist, we'll explore all the layout possibilities - even combining different colors of blocks.  

I hope seeing this tickles your interest in participating. Make your string-pieced blocks by July 31, 2009, and drop them off at West Des Moines United Methodist Church (8th and Grand, WDM), along with your contact info. Then, we'll let you know when we'll make blocks into quilt tops. Click here for detailed information.
