Stringing Along

My design wall looks like this at the moment.  
 I'm finally putting the Sharon quilt together and have started two smaller quilts that are scrap-busting string quilts.  I'm on a mission to use up scraps and some hand-me-down fabric that I'm not thrilled with.  String quilts have captured my creativity.  I can't seem to get away from them.
 This pastel one is going to go through the rainbow - not sure how large to make it.  It might get as large as a throw/lap quilt.  That sort of depends on how my supply of scraps holds up.  I always run short on orange.  I have plans to check out a new fabric store this weekend, so I'll be trying to stash up on oranges and yellows.  I do want to try to leave the edges wavy and do some tricky binding to finish it up.
 I think I'll call this Scrappy Spiderweb.  It's still in need of some borders and I have plans for some blue/white striped binding.  All this done, and the scrap baskets are still overflowing.
