A progress report on my string blocks ~ 

I don't piece on foundations, I just sew strings together until the piece looks 'big enough.'

I confirm the size with a paper template.

When the size is correct, I trim away the edges.

These blocks are trimmed to 6 1/2" x 9 1/2".

Two dozen blocks done, they were tidier before Jake wandered in to see what I was doing.

I'm working toward 40 blocks, as based on this inspiration photo.
