I've had those 5 1/2" string blocks sitting in my closet - I made them 3 years ago. Yesterday and today I put some of them together, and ended up with this top. I had a bunch of 2 1/2" strips that I used as a border - needed to use them up.
This will go to my guild's community service program, where someone else will sandwich it, quilt it, and give it to whomever they give their donated quilts to.
I still have several dozen already-completed blocks, and five gallon-sized zip bags full of strings, so I guess I need to get crackin' and make some more!
