Charity Quilting Strings

I needed some somewhat mindless sewing so I pulled out my collection of leftovers from many, many charity quilts and worked on some string blocks.
These were made using some pretty amazing leftovers. A little of this, a little of that. I used tips and tricks I learned from Bonnie Hunter in the Free Patterns section of Quiltville. Check it out!
I used the Tri-Rec Tool (Bonnie Hunter has a great video tutorial for using this tool) to sneak in this star in a contrasting color. I had just enough leftover for a narrow border. I grabbed some fluffy flannel that has been hanging around in my collection for far too long for the backing.
I was inspired by the border print to quilt swirl flowers as an all-over design.
