I read your tut very carefully and looking at the picture, I "think" I understand...but help me with this. You'll end up with one side of the block being string pieced and the other with a larger single solid color triangle and the beige base strip running down just left or right of center? How does this look with several blocks together? Can you post a picture because I"m seeing a couple of patterns emerge and would love to have a better look...and thank you for putting this together. I think it was just what I was looking for but I need more pictures to be sure I understand.

This is awesome! I can (mind) see a second and third pattern emerge. Thanks for sharing. I'm going to try it.

Love the colors and the tute, thanks. I tried to print the instructions but the right side doesn't print all the way. I tried the printable version and the highlighted selection, both of them cut off the righthand side. Any idea of what to do? Thanks.

I really like string pieced quilts -- yours is a different design than I have seen before -- will have to try this one! Thanks for the idea\.

I love that you can use up scraps this way instead of long strips. Thanx
