I love it! Scrappy strings and that bold black. The diamond shapes are very unique. I haven't seen that in string quilts. Very pretty! It reminds me of stained glass.

Beautiful! I also love that you found a quilt you liked and decided to do it!
(I think thinking that it couldn't be that hard is what gets some of us to try something.) :mrgreen:

Wow....that is pretty cool the way that looks! Its like ripples of color on stained glass! Gorgeous....

I've made quite a few string quilts and never used sashing with the squares before.... but I have made them where the center strip is all the same color and it becomes the sashing, in fact I am working on a teal colored one now.

if you decide you don't like it, you will be the only person on the planet who feels that way. :wink:

i think that's the most sophisticated treatment of strings i've ever seen. i absolutely love it! :P
