This month in the KC Scrappy Bee, Mary Anne requested string blocks.  She used white as the center stripe and I really loved that it unified the blocks.  Here are the ones I made for her:

She used paper for foundation piecing, which went ok.  My machine was a little testy, but they turned out really nice.

So nice, that I decided to make some for myself.  I've been stashbusting lately.  I've cut up some of my solid greens into 9 1/2 inch squares and used them to foundation piece some string blocks for ME.  Here's what I've got so far:

I'm not sure how big my quilt will be but I plan on using various shades of solid green for the foundation blocks.  I've got lots of strips already cut from my scraps, so I'm good to go for a while...
