    Nice. I like the pattern and the fabrics you've used. Can't wait to see a picture of the finished quilt.

    Thank you all!

    I think that by using a focus fabric helps to coordinate a scrappy quilt for those that have problems with it. This will be my first TRUE scrappy quilt. Another trick is to use whatever fabric you pick out of a brown paper bag. Only reason that you can't use it is b/c it's the same as the previous strip/piece.

    Looks absolutely beautiful - I've been researching scrappy quilts and they look like so much fun.

    Can't figure how you can get the blue lined up so good?

    I measured it on the telephone paper that is the foundation. I will try to take pictures tomorrow and post them so you can see it.

    They are actually not correct. I think I messed up measuring the blue fabric or the sewing. Thank you for the kind words.

    They look really pretty! I like how you got the blue fabric to line up as an "X" - perfection!

    So, was it difficult to do???

    Those are lively and wonderful squares. Don't you just love string quilts? I sure do. They are so easy and you think they would be ugly with all the odd colors put together, but they are actually beautiful. I have a large one I have to go to the LQS to long-arm for my 14-year-old granddaughter. I was very skeptical at first, but I think it will be gorgeous.
