Custom String Lap Quilt in Thimbleberries Sweet Home Progress #2

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!

The kids and I are home from a visit to my family.  It's always good to get into daily sunshine when one lives in the mostly cloudy, rainy Northwest!  Never one to leave home without a project in hand, I took along these scrappy strip blocks for a custom order for my Etsy shop.

All 64 blocks are complete.  I just need to remove the tissue paper backing.  I'm thinking that is a good job for the elves around here!  They are approx. 10" square (the blocks, not the elves).

Here is how they will be laid out.  The black creates boxes, and the creams toward the corners create mini boxes.  I put the cream strips closer to the edge so the block would have more color.
I've got so many projects going right now or coming up next that I am feeling a tad overwhelmed!  Here is my quilting to-do list, updated in September, 2013.
  1. Finish last row of machine quilting twin-sized Happy Big Block quilt (can't quilt item 2 'til this is done). DONE!
  2. Assemble blocks, quilt, and bind Scrappy Strip Quilt in Thimbleberries  DONE!
  3. Custom order twin-sized Rainbow Wave quilt.  DONE!
  4. Full-sized yellow quilt as a gift.  DONE!
  5. Full-sized Meadow 9-patch quilt for a friend.  DONE!
  6. Re-do a full-sized vintage hand-tied quilt with machine quilting for a friend, then re-bind.
I have begun selling vintage sewing patterns in my Etsy shop!  I have listed 40 so far and have about 60 more to list!
