I don't think there are adjectives strong enough to tell you how happy I am that I have finished this part of the quilt, but here's a few that come to mind....
I could go on...
I do still have to rip all of the paper off this last stack of blocks, and seam all of them together, but I still feel super good about this. This quilt came awfully close to becoming a UFO that I put away and forgot about at least a few times. Whatever possessed me to make a quilt like this with tiny 1" strips??? Please, dear readers, if you see me mention another teeny-tiny string project like this one, please stop me!
With a long holiday weekend, maybe that will mean some extra quality sewing time, we'll see. It's quite possible that if I use some laser focus and avoid my typical quilty-ADD, I might just have a quilt top to show you next week. All I know for sure is that I see papercuts in my immediate future.
