String blocks getting finished

My 3.5 inch string blocks are taking on a new life. They are the center of these blocks. I'm trying to use crayon colors around them for a kids quilt.

I have 2.5 inch strips cut and that is the dimension of the borders around the sting squares. At this stage it is going fast. I figured out the the lengths of the strips and cut two sets at one time. So when I get them all sewn on I have two of them done. I'm directing the strings both directions, so half go one way and half go the other direction. That will add another element of design. Chris
