Whenever I don't know what kind of quilt to make, a 9-patch is one of the first places my mind goes. It's a reliable block that's relatively quick and easy, and it's versatile. I still haven't met a 9-patch I don't like. Today's block is no exception.
It's 12.5" (will finish at 12-ish"), and each of the string units is 4.5". I just cut out (5) 4.5" squares from some scrap paper and added some strings with horizontal seams. If you've got strings that are much smaller, you can probably get away with smaller 9-patches - maybe 3.5" or less. But I was no mood to deal with skinny strings, so I went big.
