String quilt

I'm trying to get over a virus bug that has parked itself in my digestive system. So, of course, I tried to do a bit of sewing. First of all, I'm waiting for an order to arrive with some fabric for the border of the half log cabin quilt. So that one is waiting for the moment. Meanwhile, I've made a string quilt top. This quilt is for Joe, a young man who happens to be going through some tough chemo-therapy. I made the border in navy blue. I like navy and I've decided to use it more often. The strings are mostly solid colors. For fun, I used some conversation fabrics in some of the squares.

Roz, I like this one a lot -- it's sort of a wonky plaid. I like that your plain squares are all different.
