Here is one I made this week. I love the look of the smaller strips cutting across the squares. The strip fabric is actually a batik floral design but you can't tell that. I like how the design on the fabric changes when it is cut into such a small piece. The little strips look textured, like the bark of a birch tree. Unfortunately the hand sewing doesn't enhance the fabric texture, except I do like the one I did with french knots.
It's made from 2.5 inch squares, fused onto cotton batting. Then I cut small strips to lay over the squares. The strips are hand sewn on with perle cotton.
I stuck the piece on top of a finished wall quilt. I am not sure if it is finished or even if I will EVER finish it.
