Project #2 - String of Pearls QAL

These are the fabrics I've chosen to make my version of the String of Pearls quilt.  
Just feelin' like a toned-down quilt right now 
(though am tempted to make a brighter version next). 

The quilt-along uses Pearl Bracelets fabric for the block centers, and the center block is a 5 1/2" square. 

I am using charm squares of Little Black Dress fabric, so sewed part of a block to test the 
length of the strips before I cut a whole mess of them.  

The background fabric hasn't been cut yet.  I'm waiting until instructions are given
 to sew those strips so I know how the whole block is constructed.  
Then I will be sure to cut my strips to the size needed for my smaller blocks.
Am pretty sure what size to cut, but no need to chance it.

So...what to call MY version of the quilt?  String of Little Black Dresses?  NOT A String of Pearls?  :)

Pressin' on,

  2. How about "Little Black Strings"? I love that fabric line - it's gorgeous!!! And your quilt will be just as gorgeous. Sometimes "toned down" is just the ticket!!!
