I made up six pillow tops from red and green strings just for our own holiday decor. The white is Kona “Snow”, which also seemed Christmasy.
I used random width strings, and thought the effect would be more random. Now that they are together, it’s almost like I was trying to make diamonds and missed the points.
I hope that isn’t the finished effect. I think that they will quilt up okay. I wanted something fresh and modern, in Christmas colors, to replace my neutral, botanical covers for the holidays, and I think these do it.
The red and green ones are very rich and nice, more old fashioned.
To work, to work.
I’m linking up with Design Wall Monday on Judy’s Patchwork Times.

Definitely holiday flavored. Beautiful blocks, they have a lot of “movement’ and would make a dynamic quilt.
