I made this quilt after joining a string block swap on flickr. The swap pointed me to this tutorial, and somewhere along the line, I saw a picture of a similar quilt she had made with green instead of pink. However, I love the pink and black combo for a girl, so I went with hot pink.
While I think it turned out nicely, it still doesn’t give me the WOW I was hoping for, so I doubt I’ll make another one like this. Also, while string blocks are great for using up scraps, they do take quite a bit of time because there are so many seams in the block. I just don’t think the end result was worth the time put in. Still, I think it’s pretty, and it was another lesson learned.
For the back I pieced together my remaining scraps and edged it with some pink so it would stand out. I do like the back quite well. I’ll probably either give this as a gift or maybe try to sell it.
