String Quilt Progress

Hello!  I'm having a great time this week finally working on one of my old, old UFOs. I started this string quilt project at least two years ago.  It's moved with me from California to Montana, and traveled back and forth several times, with stops in Arizona and Utah!  One of my favorite quilt projects is a scrap quilt, so when I saw pictures of a string quilt, I jumped on it.  I initially started sorting my scraps by color, but then I pulled my brights together and that seemed a better choice.  
This is my setup at our California rental.  I leave my featherweight here and I'm always so happy when I get to bring it out and use it.  
I use newsprint paper which I cut to 10-1/2" squares, and draw my lines on it to line up my black and white strip.
We are getting some snow here and it's perfect weather for me to enjoy staying inside and sewing.  I didn't bring my boots with me otherwise I would be walking outside.  The snow is coming down so hard that you can't see the mountains on the other side of the valley.

Thanks for checking in!  What are you working on this week?  Send me a link to your blog if I don't already follow you, and I'll stop by your blog!

Your string blocks are gorgeous--I need to start a string project soon. I am hand quilting Barbara Brackman's Stars in a Time Warp inspired quilt--my is really time travelling as I mixed repros with everything and anything.

I have a similar string project languishing in my UFO pile. Hope yours makes it to the finish line soon! LOL
