Strip quilt keeps going

I'm still making wonky strip-pieced blocks down here in Sedona. I've been playing with arrangements and came up with these three today.

In case you didn't read my first post about this, I start by cutting old telephone book pages into squares and then I stitch-and-flip strips at wonky angles until the page is covered.

Next, I cut it down to the size I want and then peel off the paper.

The bright, saturated colors here in the high desert remind me of the colors in the quilt. This is definitely more of a sunny, hot weather quilt than one from the Northwest.

Have a colorful day
