This is a string quilt I have been working on for my sister. Initially I planned on using the multiple diamonds layout that is most popular with this paper pieced block. However, I just could not face the prospect of making 16 more blocks so I began contemplating other layouts. After doing some looking around on flickr and the Web I came up with this one (similar to a values quilt layout). I think I like it; but, it may need one more row across the bottom so it is a rectangle instead of a square...opinions? Edit: I went ahead and added another row across the bottom. Also, I've learned that the name of this layout is Barn Raising.
