And....here are the string blocks I have been making using the tutorial I posted here Sunday. I make these as "leaders and enders" (Bonnie Hunter's method) while working on the blocks above. I will continue to work on them until the "Card Trick" evolves. I have also noticed that Bonnie has posted the 3rd clue in her Roll Roll Cotton Ball Mystery quilt that uses strings blocks. I just might throw in a few 8 1/2" paper foundations and save them for later. I have been pulling fabric as the clues are posted, but won't be able to really start anything until after the first of the year.
I am linking up to Judy's Patchwork Times, who has been hosting the Monday Design Walls. We are closing in on the holidays, so I am anxious to see if others have their secret projects posted.
