Project Spectrum Pink Strips

13 pink blocks complete.

This is the stack of blocks so far. There are 63 x 10" blocks so far, but these will be cut down to 9 1/2" blocks to make sure they are all square.

Here is what the floor looks like after sewing, time to get the Dyson out!


I am having a rest from the strip blocks for the moment, I have a few quilts I want to sew...but I have done the 3 colour themes for this 2 month Project Spectrum challenge. The box of 1 1/2" and 1 1/4" strips is slowly getting smaller. It is hard to believe I have managed to sew so many blocks out of this box. It makes me wonder how many quilts I could make from all that stash I own, and in comparison to some other quilters I know, my stash is tiny! :)

In the meantime, I have been stitching the 11th angel (not much left to go on that one), and also tryinga knitted bag, which I will then felt in the washing machine....but you will have to wait to see photos of those ones. For now I must go and do some housework, so later I can quilt!

I love all the string blocks. Are you planning to make multiple quilts or use the different colors in a single quilt?
