vintage sheet bee blocks

I have signed up for my very first quilting bee - the Vintage Sheet Quilting Bee, hosted by Jen at Rosey Little Things. Rachel at my tiny robot heart has the first month, and requested scrappy string blocks. I was so excited, because it's been on my list of things to try forEVER. I was all over it this weekend.

Twenty 6.5" squares pieced....



And trimmed...



And waiting to have the paper removed - a PERFECT chore for my weekly team conference call tomorrow afternoon. :-)



I played with a few, just to get an idea of how they'll look together. So pretty!



I can understand why people say these are so addictive. I barely made a dent in my scrap pile, and I just want to keep making more and more and more!
