i call it a kite and I use a little of water soluble glue stick to hold kite in place and am not removing the dryer sheet. And like you said, just sewing alternate strips that measure between 1 and 1 1/4 inch

Such a bold design! Not everyone can pull this one off, but you sure have. Great start!

I really like the way this is turning out and glad you are enjoying doing it. please take the time to audition the idea of using a sashing in this neat quilt. Some times on a scrappy quilt, adding sashings stops the flow and connectedness of the whole look. There is so much action and depth in this pattern, it might look better without the sashing.

If the sashing idea is to make the quilt larger, either make more blocks or add outer borders to increase the size, if that is what is needed.

I really, really like the quilt without sashing. Just think about it and audition that green before you commit to it.
keep posting your progress for all to enjoy.
peace

The reason that I am thinking about sashing is because of the seams when I would join 2 blocks. But it is still a possibility. Will post when I get it together

Very pretty. Did you use the dryer sheets like paper piecing?

Another question...are you using a die or template to cut the kites? Size of block? Thanks....my reason for asking.....a bin full of scrap strips that need a "job".......
