    I made two more rows, one for each side. Of coarse I had to do one of them backwards and had to take it all apart and redo it. Today I put the binding on, washed and dried it and put it on my bed!
    I did an off white binding to match the joining strips! Yea, now I can move on to something else!!!

    That is really outstanding--since I am new to this how do you start the blocks?? Are all the strips cut the same width?

    Very pretty, I have never seen one with the light and dark stripe blocks. I really like that.

    Thanks Cobaltjars...I try to sew every day. Some days not for very long. I take frequent breaks to clean, cook or get on the message board. I don't do anything for long stretches any more but I just keep plugging away! :-D

    Actually each block is half light and half dark with a black strip in the middle. This is just one way of putting it together! :-D

    I always love string quilts and yours is a real beauty. I can see my favorite color teal in there! Looks great on your bed too!
