"Strings project" update

I had a chance to get one more good sewing session in towards my Strings 2 quilt.

Here is the result:

I was able to get 18 more chain blocks made. This makes my total made to be 40 blocks. I need 56 total. Hopefully next time I get to work on this project I can finish up the last 16 blocks. 

These are the blocks I've got so far. The string blocks are enough for the quilt pictured below.

This is is my plans for Strings 2 quilt.

Because I will soon have all the blocks needed, my goal for next sewing session is threefold - 

1. Finish the last 16 chain blocks using some reds and yellows and maybe oranges.

2. Cut the sashing pieces I'm going to need when I put it together

3. Cut the side setting triangles (and corner setting triangles). 

Then, hopefully the NEXT time after that, i can put it together.  So, as we Christians say, Lord willing, it will take 2 more sessions to finish this top.

And that's all for now!  Have a great day!
