Sabrina's quilt under construction

Here's a photo of  some of the blocks that I made so far for Sabrina's quilt.  I made some house blocks with little figures in the windows.  And there are two wonky heart blocks, that I learned how to make from Tonya's blog.  The shoo-fly blocks are made from directions in Gwen Marston's book Liberated Quiltmaking.  I made a shoo-fly quilt before from those directions.  I sent that quilt to my daughter who lives in Florida.  This time I put novelty prints in the central squares.  I like it so much, that I'm thinking of making a baby quilt like that sometime.  As a matter of fact, since I have given away a baby quilt lately, I guess I ought to make a couple more of those, as I never know when a new baby will arrive.  The mother and father might know, but that doesn't always translate into timely info for the quilter.  Right now, I'm planning to make a bunch of string blocks to fill in the rest of Sabrina's quilt.  I have an enormous quantity of scraps at the moment, so string blocks it will be.
