Strings Strings and more

Strings... are finally into some blocks. Tuesday the kids and I sewed 22 blocks and then I did 8 more so we could put a top together. Wed. we spent a few minutes trimming them.... and today they are layed out and ready to sew into a top.

The good news is that with a border it should be perfect Quilt of Valor size and be ready to go in May... the bad news is I still have 2 boxes FULL of RWB strings, and ran out of foundations. So I will have to cut more!

We have had wind here EVERY day - and this morning we went outside and played most of the morning in just a slight breeze. Came in for lunch and now the wind is just howling ... it keeps bringing me more and more tumbleweeds. And my sons and husband keep burning them and smushing them and as soon as there is an open spot on the fence another tumble weed appears.... just look at my goofy horse. He is standing in them randomly kicking them... he's in those teenager horse years ya know. And he has the attitude to prove it *smile*
Have a great day!

We are coming up to our CO. house Monday with DS#3 & family, & we know we have several feet of snow in our driveway & up to garage door! Looks as if you are having balmy weather.
Great going on the QOV's I'll get that maroon one back to the piecer for binding next week & then give her your info.

Thank you for leaving me a nice comment. I love your string blocks / quilt. I would like to try making a quilt like that one day.

I just LOVE your string quilts! I might have to make up a few of those.

The blocks look great! I think the common centre strip really pulls the quilt together :)
