String Block Update


I have been motoring along when it comes to making my string blocks and I blew past the 208 blocks required to make a 65 x 80 quilt. Once I hit the 238 mark I decided that was a good place to stop.

There are now enough blocks to make a quilt 70 x 85 and I think that is a pretty good size. :) I have started sewing them together into pairs and then sets of four and I have put some of them on my design wall. I think they look pretty darn good. :)

This is the view from the other side of my sewing station - those blocks are piling up but look at my string bins....they are still full!

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! We had a wonderful Christmas celebration here with family and friends on Christmas Eve but now that all of the visiting has been done, the gifts opened and most of the food eaten I am more than ready to get back to normal routine!!! :)

It's gonna be a great quilt! Keep reminding me I have couple of hundred that could turn ito a great quilt! Maybe I'll get to them someday!

Those sure are pretty! Normally I really need to play with the scrap bins and whittle them down. They seem to just be getting more and more without me adding to them!
