WIP Wednesday - String Star

I have finished the string star block that I am using for the DS mini quilt swap and it was certainly quite a challenging block to make.
I have seen quite a few of these lovely string star blocks popping up around blogland recently and they are all really beautiful when made from scrappy strips but I have chosen to do a rainbow effect which I hope my partner will like.

  1. I recently did one of the blocks (won't be doing another!). It's definitely challenging though looks quite effective when it's done.

    I love how it looks in the rainbow colours - so bright and pretty!
