String Blocks...

117 scrappy blocks I have made this past week
 to add to this quilt top that I made a couple of years ago
 it just wasn't big enough to do anything with... well it could have been a throw but I have enough of those around and I have a white queen size brass bed that it would look lovely on...
so now I am adding those 117 strings to the sides...

Remember the quilt I made for my daughters friend who was having a baby girl...
well look here at her on her quilt...
isn't she just a cutie...


  1. She certainly is a little cutie and I bet she enjoys looking at the colours and shapes on the quilts... string blocks are coming along well.. it will look amazing..
