Pat Sloan's String Bean Challenge

This month Pat Sloan has been having a challenge to use up some of your scraps and make her String Bean block and quilt. See Pat Sloan's String Bean Challenge for details of the challenge and her link to the block instructions.

Pat's directions have the block finish at 12 x 15 using a center block 5 x 7. I decided to use a 5 x 10 center by cutting up layer cakes, so my blocks end up at 13" x 18". I also didn't use all 2 1/2" strips, but used 2 sets of 1 1/2" strips mixed with 1 row of 2 1/2" strips to give it a bit of a different look.

So let me know what you think?  I think I am going to finish up more blocks and take this from baby size to bed size.

Linking up with Freshly Pieced WIP Wednesday.
