    Same color theme as a unifying element is wonderful. You can do a scrappy center also, just keep the center shades and tones of one color that is different then the main scraps. Like if there isn't alot of blue in the scraps, use blues as the center as an example.

    That would totally depend on what I had for the strings/scraps. My idea of a string quilt using just scraps would be hard to use the same piece in every block but then again maybe not the same color. Maybe I'll try that as it would look like some coordination.
