Step three of Roll, Roll Cotton Boll mystery is a bit daunting to me! But there's no whining in quilting, so the only option is to just buckle down and get 'er done! I don't really have "strings" so the first step was to cut the neutrals I had pulled into various size strips.
I think this is a good start, don't you:
I may find myself in a bit of a predicament because I cut ALL the fabric I had pulled into strips...which was a good chunk of the neutrals in my stash already. If we need them for another step, I may need a trip to the LQS. Darn.
I have never made string blocks before, so this is my first attempt. I think they turned out just fine! It's yet another therapy lesson for my OCD tendencies...I'm trying not to worry too much about putting similar colors/widths, etc, next to each other. LOL
It was actually quite enjoyable to make these first two blocks...only 58 more to go!
