I had an abundance of strings and began sewing the dark and medium ones together. They are not all the same width. My only criteria was not to have strings of the same fabric touching as I sewed lengthwise.
The blocks are 6" square and I used 2" squares on the corners, then sewed them diagonally. The finished quilt measures 64 3/4" x 85 3/4".
The batting is Soft n Crafty 80% cotton / 20% polyester. It hand quilts easily and puffs up nicely after a turn in the washer and a spin in the dryer.
