I am totally enamored with string quilts. They really use up scrap in a hurry. No special cutting required necessarily- just strips- any size. The one I did here is bright colors. I plan to do another in Autumn colors eventually. A bit of a different design.
This is one of the ones I planned to finish after New Years, as part of my goals for 2014. Mission accomplished.
If you want to do a quilt like this, you cut a square- 4 1/2 or 5 inch, measure 1 1/2 inches down from corner.
