WIP- String-Pieced Blocks

I'm working on a quilt that I've put off for a while…  

After cutting forty-nine 11×11 paper foundations and hundreds of fabric strips, I grew tired of it.  This will be a quilt for my 13 year-old sister's double bed, to coordinate with her room.  Well, now that I've put together so many blocks, I really like this project!

I went away for the weekend to a small sewing retreat with my husband's mom and friends, before leaving, I made a small ironing table using this tutorial, it really came in handy for this particular quilt block as you need to press it after sewing on each strip.
