I haven't chosen my official project yet for this group/challenge yet, but I decided to play around with some ideas from Gwen Marston's Liberated String Quilts, and I thought the group might enjoy seeing some of the fun.  



Unfortunately, after making gorgeous pieces of fabric with liberated strips, I cut them into 5" blocks.


I say "unfortunately" because I really loved the look of those strips all sewn together.  We'll see....

I love it! Who would have thought all those plain strips would look so stunning? Great job!

Loved the original too - you can always do another one! Do share with us how the block come together.

Thanks, everyone! No matter what, I still have plenty of these solids, so I can always recreate :)

I know what you mean. I have made strata like that before and then been nostalgic for how it was before i cut it! Oh well, if you really miss it, you can make some more.

The colours are so stunning you've just got to recreate this.

Sometimes simple is best but we all feel compelled to "do more" ... I hope you'll have fun playing with the blocks and perhaps create another striped cloth for the back (or the top of another quilt).

LOVE the colors!

wheee, at least you have more of the fabrics. you could create a strata center and then surround it with the 5" blocks... or make 2 quilts.
