    I want to make this quilt. trying to figure out the best way to piece the blocks between the picture squares. I think it can be done with strip sets, but I am stumped right now

    It looks like each picture is surrounded by pieces on all 4 sides first by a very narrow white strip, then sort of a pieced square in a square. That part should be easy enough to figure out. Not sure about the other pieces. Is this just a pic you have, or do you have the actual quilt so you can measure the width of the strips & squares? Based on the sizes of the photo squares you want to make, you probably could come up with your own measurements.

    I'm with Jcy.. A thin white strip around each picture, then strips sewn together.

    I'd measure the picture with the strip sewn on to see how many strips to sew together.. to get the right width.

    The strips also look like they were randomly cut & sewn together lengthwise. I'm wondering if this might be one of the Stash Busting Quilt Ideas.

    I sure like it.

    It could be the pictures were sewn on top of an already made quilt.

    the pics have some borders on them. It is a panel of pics. I have that, but the randomness of the strips has me baffled. has to be an easy way to do it. All I have is this pic. It is Town Square by Moda

    Someone in my quilting club made this quilt recently. I believe it is from the Town Square collection. I have the book. Give me a few hours and I will look for you. It may be this evening before I can get back to you.

    This is the best I can come up with. Try building by making blocks. Depending on which side the photo is on, the construction would be a bit different.

    thanks. I am still gathering fabrics to use with it. Having some trouble matching up the grey/green. It is an odd color. I have something that should work though. Just being picky right now

    thanks Karen. I was splitting the blocks differently. That makes more sense. usually I can dissect a block easily, but this one seems to be a challenge foe some reason
