15 instead of 8

In a previous post about these strippy blocks from the Reversible Quilting book (see 19th & 28th Jan post), I thought I had enough fabric strips to make 8 x 10" blocks. Today, before I begin sewing the next quilt, I thought I would sew all the beige strips, to get that colour group finished.

I ended up with 15 blocks! Almost enough for a lap size quilt....just of my 1 1/4 and 1 1/2" strips. I can't even imagine how many quilts I can make out of the 2' strip box!

This weekend, I hope to start a quilt with Japanese fabrics, and try and work on some blue strip blocks as well.

P.S. Family is all well. Boys are at school and happy and Phil is busy at work...seems to be a lot of quilting going on, and not much else! :)
