Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt RRCB step 3

Instead of working on my to do list yesterday, I goofed around and played with fabric and surfed around blogland before scrambling around to get the laundry, housework, cooking, and oh yeah picking up S and E at the airport.
I worked on my Le Petite project Saturday night and now just need to do the borders. 

I also worked on Step 3 which is 60 - 8 1/2" string pieced blocks.  I had two boxes of neutral scraps of all shapes and sizes so got those out....
and made a huge mess!!!  Poor Stella nearly got lost in it.

I am so happy to use these scraps up! What was I thinking saving crazy bits and pieces of all sorts of sizes???!!?? I now cut scraps up in usable sizes and sort by size rather than color. 

I have 10 blocks made (you can always tell when I take late afternoon photos in winter).
And 50 more to go...

Oh, I didn't realize Bonnie's Mystery involves string blocks. How very enticing. Yours look wonderful!

There is no way I would have enough nutrals to make 60 blocks, even if it wasn't string blocks. But I am seeing them all over blogland so, as I tell DH all the time, I don't have much of a stash. ;-)

It's fun watching people's posts on the mystery quilt. Stella appears to be a great kitty helper!

I recognize some of those strings in your blocks. Simply Indigo! So enjoyed visiting with you on Saturday! Take care!
