Strip Twist Quilt Block

I sent this quilt block off today to be part of a collaboration quilt. We were asked to use only Kona Solids in bright rainbow colors. I had a great time selecting a bold rainbow of color. My solid stash isn't that diverse, but I had what I needed. (This evening I found more Kona that would have been helpful, but I hadn't put it away from a project last month. Oops!)

The block comes from the Strip Twist tutorial by Bonnie Hunter. Since I was only making one block, I selected 16 colors and cut my pieces 2 1/2" x 8 1/2". I wanted to be intentional about the placement of colors so that the rainbow would flow across the block. Here are what my initial strip sets look like.

The block went together magically from there. It has a strong visual impact, but is so quick and easy to make! And I appreciated how there were no seams to match up in the horizontal and vertical seams.

This block makes me itch to play with solids some more!

 

I'm participating in the 31 Day Blog Writing Challenge with Cheryl of muppin.com.

      Thank you, Mel. How much do I love my new floor!? And not just for great photo ops. ;-) I totally want to make more of these blocks.
