Easy Street Step 3 and More Strings

I had a good time on Easy Street Step 3. I started playing around with these units, and there are lots of possibilities for these units in a quilt all their own. That may go on my to-do list.

Here are a sample of my step 3 units.

I got 8 more string blocks done too. I'm not sure this container of blue strings will ever empty. I'm sure I will eventually have to make smaller string blocks, but will they ever be all used? Probably not, I even added more blue strings when I was squaring up the blue fabrics I cut for the Easy Street Mystery.

I pieced another Christmas stocking too. I have Easter eggs on this stocking, and Be My Valentine fabric on the pink stocking I made! Too funny! If my count is right, I need two more stockings for this year's festivities. I am thinking a white/cream stocking and ????? I'll have to look through my strings and see what I have. I already have two blue stockings and two green ones. The other colors I only have one each (black, brown, purple, yellow, orange, red, pink). My stocking is made with selvages, and I have a couple two color stockings as well. Maybe a red/green Christmas-y stocking instead of going for a specific color? Patriotic?

I got a bunch of other blocks made for my floral/cream quilts made this week. I'll have to lay out some of those and take a photo of them too. I get extra sewing time this week because I only have to babysit the twins, my other two charges are gone on vacation. Hurray for sewing time!

Of course you will never empty those string boxes!! Quiltmaking breeds scraps and even scrap quilts breed more scraps! Have fun making a dent in the strings at least.
Loving the progress on your m ystery quilt, lovely colours so far.

Oh my goodness I love all the projects you are working on. When I get time I want to make some string quilts. I can't wait to see how your Easy Street turns out with your own color palette!
