More String Blocks

I've been a tidbit under the weather the past couple of days so not a lot of sewing going on. I did sew 8 of these string blocks, which were very quick and easy to do, and then back to the couch or bed for me... Anyway, I plan on working on these blocks along as I have the scraps to do them. I think once I get all of the blocks done for this quilt I will really like it. The pattern requires 124 of these diamonds and I now have 28 of them done, so I still have a long way to go.
The weather is cold and we are expecting some snow, but I don't think it is anything like we had a few weeks ago. But we have a nice warm fire going in the fireplace.

String blocks are fun to sew...just sew along with not a lot of thinking or planning. Some times in life we need this.

Hope you get to feeling perky once more.

Happy New Year! Sometimes "mindless" sewing can be the best kind! It helps clear my head!!

Pretty blocks. You sure get a lot done when you aren't feeling well. I don't accomplish that much on a good day.

Hope you get to feeling better fast!

I love doing the string patterns too! The Spiderweb quilt is coming along nicely with those, they are fast aren't they...

Almost done quilting the quilt on Bailey, I got sidetracked onto something else, imagine that :O) but its almost done! Hope by Sunday.
