Plan B Progress

Remember this hot mess of strips?  I've been really busy strip-piecing them together.  Then I spent some time "trueing" the blocks up to 16.5" square.

Oh, no, I have an uneven number of squares!  I rustled up 8 more strips, now I have l8 blocks.

My next step will be to join two blocks together.  I'm going to lay them crosswise for this next step, sew around all four sides then cut them on the diagonal, both ways.  I'm going for something like this:

May your bobbins always be full,


  1. That block arrangement is awesome!! I have so many strips that this is a great solution for them! Eyes on you, Girl!! LOL!

  2. Thanks for sharing how to turn your strip blocks into a quilt like the pin. Such a clever idea. It's going to look great!
