Aren't they festive? I find string blocks so appealing. Because of all the scraps, there are never two alike and as Rosa notes, varying the width of the strips too can give a totally new look. They are a wonderful way to use up little leftover bits that don't fit anywhere else. Check out Linda's new string quilt here.
Rosa writes that once these are quilted, she is making two more sets as her neighbour saw them and wants a set too. (isn't that how it goes?! :) Rosa, I wish I were as efficient as you in getting Christmas things sewn in March. Great job! I hope you will send pictures of your next ones to share also.
