String Blocks

I had more fun making these blocks than a person should have at their sewing machine. Used Ashley's fabulous tutorial, you can find it here. Today I ended up making them a little wonky so the ivory linen didn't match up exactly since it will be a pillow, wanted it a little unexpected. The quilting was fun, I did organic lines in a ivory thread. The effect is simple, warm and fun . . . I am loving how it is coming out and hope my swap partner will love it as well. Pictures soon!

I'm working on a string scrappy quilt right now. I have never made a quilt and it's looking pretty good if I say so what it looks like when I get it together might be a different story!
Your block is pretty.

I love this quilt idea - and with so many scraps I could make a whole bunch, now where's the time?
Love your fabric choices! ♥
