I came across this quilt on ebay and it is a style of string quilt that I have never seen before. The strips appear to all be the same width, but with planning as to their placement. The diamonds that are created by the triangles that are sewn in creates a design that I have never seen.
Can't post a picture here since they can't be copied from the auctiva link, but you can see all of the pictures at the link below.
Wow! That is so cool!!! Just think of all the quilts that could be designed that way!!!!! amazing! Now if it just connect to the Accucgo Cutter and slip into the automatic piecing machine and come out on the self-ironing board! Whohoooo!!!

I haven't read through the comments but now that I look at it..Bonnie Hunter made a quilt or two from that pattern. It's in her shirt tails book..i.e. quilts from old cotton shirts. It's very similar...just a little strippiness on those side pieces..I fell in love with it and bought the book at her trunk show.

Love Bonnie's quilt with the neutral strips. The antique one is sweet with the blue strips making squares and the diamonds narrower. I have dozens of 1 1/2" neutral strips left over from a long ago project. giving me ideas! TFS
