String quilts are such a great way to use up long pieces of fabric that wouldn't be wide enough for a lot of other quilt blocks. For those of us who just can't bear to throw out fabric, using up these strips in blocks is very satisfying.
This type of block feels improvisational and intuitive. And multiple ones can form wonderful blocks in new rows and star shapes, etc, by keeping the darks and lights on one side and arranging strategically. Get the pattern for the framework of the 4 quadrants and have fun with some strips of color, pattern goodness!
