Here is the layout I think I will use. This background fabric is the $2.97 a yard fabric I bought. I think it will set off the string blocks really well.
I laid out the blocks on top of the fabric just as an audition. The quilt is already spoken for even before it is done. We will see. Went and picked up the kids today and spent a little time with them. They are growing up and time flies really fast. Chris
