Can't.....stop....!

Making string blocks, that is. :)

My "traditional" bee, Miss Bee Havin', is planning a sew day soon and we will all be bringing 8.5" string blocks to make quilts for the local hospital's Neuro Care Unit. I already had some wonky strips cut from the border of my batik BOM (um... blocks circa 2008? As soon as I get it quilted I'll be posting pics...it is SO ME!! And it's the first bed quilt I've made just for myself. It will be my retreat/travel companion :) But I digress.

Anyway, so I've been happily sewing away today. This is my kind of piecing...sew, flip, sew, flip...no seam matching! No rules! Perfect sizing when you trim it up!  What could be better?

I really really hate I'm going to miss the B'ville Bee Retreat. Not on;y will I miss you all but I had to move my scrap basket this evening and just about threw my back out. We've got to do something about that thing.
