Pink and Black String Quilt

I made this quilt after joining a string block swap on flickr.  The swap pointed me to this tutorial, and somewhere along the line, I saw a picture of a similar quilt she had made with green instead of pink.  However, I love the pink and black combo for a girl, so I went with hot pink.

While I think it turned out nicely, it still doesn’t give me the WOW I was hoping for, so I doubt I’ll make another one like this.  Also, while string blocks are great for using up scraps, they do take quite a bit of time because there are so many seams in the block.  I just don’t think the end result was worth the time put in.  Still, I think it’s pretty, and it was another lesson learned.

For the back I pieced together my remaining scraps and edged it with some pink so it would stand out.  I do like the back quite well.  I’ll probably either give this as a gift or maybe try to sell it.
