Roll roll Cotton Boll

Started working on Bonnie Hunter's third clue for Roll Roll Cotton Boll mystery quilt.  This is my first attempt at making the string block.  The blocks are pretty scary and then after they are trimmed-look pretty cool.  I can't wait to see what we are going to do next!

Here is the pile of strips I am working with.

The uncut blocks on the right and the cut ones on the left.  I think I have about 20 in either uncut or cut stage right now.  40 more to go!

Here is the pile of the other fabrics I am using for this quilt.  I am sticking with Bonnie's colors because I know I can't go wrong with them.  I strayed a little bit last quilt and it wasn't as dramatic as hers.  I learned my lesson.  I really have to work on choosing my own colors.
