A year ago I purchased a package of Amy Butler's Mod Midwest in a sampler kit. I wanted to do this quilt and had the strips cut from those 1/8 yd strips into 2.5 inch strips and 1.5 inch strips. I changed my mind and thought I'd try a bento box pattern. I wasn't particularly loving that so I returned to this original design. I added coordinating pastel colored plain strips to make it through this quilt and this is what I got. Pattern for this is here: http://www.maryquilts.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/Half-Square-Strings.pdf
This is made from leftover strings, and I actually have enough left for another one similar to this. It made a nice baby sized quilt. Now to complete the bento box quilt and the other baby quilt...just need to purchase more batting and backings.
