Planning for a Quiltathon

13 03 2012

We’re planning a quiltathon in September to raise money for a group of women in India and in the process will be making quilts for Linus.  We’ve been thinking about possible blocks and wonder if string quilts like these would work well.  They can be made from strips of a variety of widths so are great for scraps and have a great 3D effect when joined together.  What do you think? If you look on my Flickr page you can see the links to the makers of each of these quilts:
