Yellow and White Strings

I finished this baby quilt while visiting Boston. Quilted on my daughter's featherweight.

Yellow and white string baby quilt
At New Year's I sewed all my string scraps into 8.5" blocks by color. These are all the yellows and most of the white. Edit: The quilt finished about 41" square.

Detail of quilting and binding.

Really pretty. Great use of String blocks. Very curious, I know, but what was the finished size of your quilt?

The light strings play well with the yellow strings. I love how this baby quilt turned out.

Thanks, everyone, for the kind comments. There's a bit more information on my own blog. This was definitely the way to clear out the scrap bag. Some pieces were new but many had been passed over several times. Sewing them in color groups seems to be a good way to use them up.
I'll edit this post but the quilt is about 41" square from 8.5" unfinished blocks.

Wonderful! Perfect for a baby. I've been meaning to sew all my like-colored scraps together someday. You've reminded me!
