 Today was Quiltville day, I am with Orca Bay!
Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville is doing this mystery quilt.

This is not Orca Bay!

This is a backing for Carolina Christmas which I did with Bonnie ....err 2 years ago....and yes the quilt is not finished!

I did not have enough backing fabric, and had left over pieces so I had an idea!

My idea was to use the leftovers to create a pattern of the mystery on the back!

I am not following instructions well this time round and have started my collection for use as part of the backing from week one.

Here is week one and the boo boos....only some...I'm not showing the pile!

Here is the shoe box with the 30 or so hourglass blocks I finished that week .
Now for this week!  Stringing the blues.....
I made sure the instructions were very close at hand, and achieved 12 little blues ready to go and on display on my design wall.  Bonnie was right, blue strings seem to be never ending!

Great blocks and very nice blog title.

Your blue strings look great and I really like the neutrals that you used.

Looking good so far! Great backing on Carolina Christmas, what a fun way to use up all the extras. Looks like step three is out, guess what I'll be doing this weekend!
