I like the way you used black to offset the colors!

Thanks for the kind comments...I built my blocks on 10 inch muslin, trimmed then to 9-1/2 inches..I ended up not using any batting...they are quite heavy without it

Very nice. I really like how the black makes all the colors stand out.

Really nice!
I had leftovers from a King size quilt so I started making some string blocks and found it quite addicting!

Great job with making your scraps into quilts. They are pretty and so useful. Too funny that we have to buy more fabric to use the scraps in our life.

Your quilt grabs the eye! I don't know if it's the black borders or the strips, but it compels you to examine each block closely and be amazed. Nice!

That's very pretty! The black really sets off the colors.
