All Strung Out

The first week of the holidays has whizzed by and for once I can claim I have achieved something. I have made more string blocks ready to trim so I will have 80 done. Without borders the quilt top will measure 60" by 75". There are 36 trimmed blocks on the left and 44 waiting to be trimmed on the right. Okay, so the top is not finished. But, hey, I did 44 blocks in 3 days.
On Wednesday I took a reconnaissance shopping trip. I am organising a mystery bus tour for the quilt club and, of course, I had to check out where we are going and how long it will take and all that stuff. My friend Janice drove us in her fab Citroen car and I navigated. We had a ball! I am a bit poorer ( make that quite a bit poorer) but happy that the basic planning is done - not that I need an excuse to go fabric shopping :-)

Lay them out on the wall, come on, we want to see how you're going to place them, zigzag or not, sashed or not...

and i didn't mind at all about the coffee, I caught up on my sleep the next night and i can cope with a couple of short nights before i get cranky!

How're you going to arrange them?
