  10. I've got a pile of strips waiting for this! Did you add them together randomly or put some thought into colours?

    Cheers,

  18. It must feel good to get the blocks done and laid out -- it's very pretty. I just wish my piles of strings would go down when I make string quilts but I can't make them fast enough.
