      I’m not sure yet! I was thinking initially I would do diagonal lines, in the ditch on both sides of the white and then in the opposite direction too. But then I started to think I would do free motion, using a variegated thread. I’ve changed my mind on the color of the backing (a surprise!) so I have a bit of time to figure it out, as I need to either order some fabric online or lug the kiddos to the quilt store. 🙂

    This is beautiful! I have attempted a few string blocks in the past…Did you make your foundation larger and then square it up to the finished size you wanted? It seems my blocks ended up shrinking up a bit if I remember correctly…

      I followed this method from Ashley over at Film in the Fridge. The strips are all longer than the paper and then you cut off the ends when you are done. It’s great!
