String Quilt Top

I am going to quilt it with the old time fan pattern by hand. This is a replica of an antique one I saw, but I didn't try to make an exact match, just basically used the colors and similar patterns, and didn't worry about the placement. The blocks were done on notebook paper, then trimmed down to 9 1/2 by 6 1/2. The pattern comes from the center all being the same fabric.

Here is a close up. I am very happy with this one and will make it again, probably as a gift in another color.
