A few weeks ago I started working on a "strings quilt" and went though a small pile of strings that my wife put in a small basket. I had 2 large plastic containers of "Scraps" in my stash and since I want to do a large project with 2 1/2 inch squares more or less a rainbow. Any way I have been going though the bins and I have made a small dent in the pile. I now have the gallon size bag of strips for my strip quilt above and I have tons and tons of 2 1/2 inch squares. The ones on the left below are sorted by colors and the ones on the right still need sorting. Note this pile does not include the leftovers from my Gray and Orange quilt (or the Orange + quilt). Though there are a number of new grays on the bottom right of the not sorted stuff to add to that.
The amazing thing is I still have too much to go through, this is what is still left in my "Scraps" basket below. I think it will take me another month of cutting to go though it all. Maybe I will have to make some string blocks again this week. But then again, Tanya plopped a new quilt she basted on my desk and told me its ready for the "Quilting Fairy" to quilt it.
