String Quilt by inquilternity. I like this one a lot because the lighter borders allow the eyes to rest. Most of the time these types of string quilts are all in your face color. Nice job.

no pattern. I used 7 inch muslin squares to sew my strips onto. Each square is made up of 4 light colored strips, 4 dark colored strips and 8 half light/half dark strips. Random widths. Final quilt top is 9 of these blocks.

Easy and versatile string quilt block for scraps! String-piec the square, then slap the thin triangle across one end. Make the triangle from a pale, very clear blue, and they'll appear to float above the surface. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/38702878017711567/ is same block but with solid squares instead of string-pieced ones.
