I made a Sunny Lanes pattern in the past using calico in place of the usually solid "lane" fabric. My post about that quilt can be found HERE.

This time, I replaced the four-patch blocks with string blocks.

This is a larger quilt than the first, and I'm not really happy with how the lanes at the edges worked. Next time, I need to take a bit more time in the planning stage, to create a more symmetrical pattern.
I do, however, love the colors and fun fabrics.

This was a fun project. It is easy to replace traditional blocks with string blocks to make a new variation on an old favorite.
I'm almost finished with the top of my Good Fortune quilt (Bonnie K. Hunter's Mystery). I'll have pictures soon.
