I cannot bear to throw away those strings:  the cuts left at the end of the fabric that are less than 2 inches wide down to 1/2 inch wide.  I sew them to 7 inch mujslin backs and then trim to 6.5 inch squares.  This quilt top is 84 x 84.  That is a lot of strings!

This is a beautiful quilt! How wide are the black sashing strips?

The black sashings were 1 inch cuts, which finished at 1/2 inch.

I made one similar to this with batiks. Carlene I agree, any size scrap can be eventually used.  DOn't throw anything out. Your quilt is beautiful.  Nice job.
