Part 5 of En Provence, the Quiltville mystery, was a snap. 64 3.5" HSTs. My guess is that the yellow and green fabric will be the sashing/border for the purple, magenta, and neutral units we've made so far.
[Didja see? Bonnie included a screenshot of my FB post of these units on her blog !]
I assembled the pieced string blocks I showed last week.
I reassembled them.
Did I empty the 2" strip bin? Hah! (But I used up almost all of this red-on-red print. Hooray!)
But wait, there's more!
I've seen this block design in several sources. The immediate inspiration came from the fall/winter issue of Quilts and More. That designer used 1-1/4" strips to make 6" blocks. I chose to use 1-1/2" strips which resulted in 8" blocks. Each block requires a width-of-fabric cut from 40" from two fabrics. Of course you could use wider strips.
When the blocks are assembled the flimsy will be 56 x 64.
Here is a pre-constructed block so you can see how it fits together.
