"Strings 2" project update

I only did one sewing session with these.

This is what I got done:

1. Cut sashing strips - 1.5"x7.5" for between the blocks.

2. Finished up 3 more chain blocks (need 2 more, I think, without counting - )

3. Attached many of the sashing strips between sets of string blocks and chain blocks.  

I'm trying to set it up so that next weekend I can lay out my rows.  I've found that sewing an on point top together seems to take longer than sewing a horizontal quilt together - even if it is the same number of blocks or almost the same number. 


I've found that once I get to sewing the top together at the end, however, I really get into it.  Hopefully I'll have time next weekend to do my nest step and get those setting triangles cut and the whole thing laid out.

So while I didn't get a whole lot done on this project, I did make progress.  My philosophy of this whole project is just to "keep on keeping on" even if it is just a couple of hours. I figure eventually I'll finish something!

And there are times that I'm forcing myself to work on these - it's not my favorite thing to do - but my attitude is starting to improve. Before I actually use up a whole laundry basket full, I may love using them!!!

This is the plan  for Strings 2!
