My absolute favorite block to make, You know when you dont want to start a big project but you want a big quilt, this is the way to go... I love making these blocks, I use the phone book pages for the pattern. I swap with this flicker group, its a no commitment group and the deadline is 3 months away from the start.. I make these blocks to relax and to use up scraps. I have made some I just cant get rid of because of what it reminds me of. I now have a Full size Quilt in progress without any sashing,binding, just scrappy..6.5 X6.5 .Mini scrappy string block . For your own keepings you can make any size.
