Strings

The string blocks look really different, don't they? This is with the block borders and plain sashing...the sashing material is from the back of another quilt. It has lots more borders, according to the pattern, but I may not make all of them. This quilt has been cut out for ages, so count this one on the UFO finishing list!!

I really love the horizontal and verticle strings. It's a new twist on ann old favorite! I like the quilt on your side board too! Thanks for the comment on my little heart blocks. I should have a quilt top done by Monday!

You know how I like to share those outloud type comments. :)

What is your block size on this quilt? Did you make large squared and cut them some clever way? Inquiring minds would like to know....Thanks.
