This is Robin’s quilt and she made the blocks using the stitch and flip method using a dryer sheet as a foundation. She used brown and beige fabrics from her stash making this a great stash buster project! She created her own layout with the blocks by added a ‘string’ block between to give it an abacus feel and then sashing strips between each column. She added a nice 7 1/2” wide outer border in a solid fabric so I quilted it with the Curved Echo border design. I have a tutorial on how to quilt this design here. I quilted swirls in the sashing strips, U-turns in the string blocks and did a quick twisting design on the scrap blocks.
