Thanks everyone for the comments. I should finish the orange string blocks today and maybe start putting the rows together, we'll see how the day goes.

One thing I learned in adding these borders was to edge stitch the white string border before attaching it. Then when you are pulling it while adding the next border, the pieces don’t come apart. I’m working on border number 6. Then I’ll decide if it is big enough or if it needs a #7. Hope to have a finished pic soon.

Feathers-n-Fur: That's a good tip to staystitch. I should have done that with my orange strip units.

Sync, your quilt is conning along really well.

Feathers-n-fur, thank-you for a great tip.

I’m thinking of making some fabric change. I’m not impressed with my brown fabric. I’m thinking of switching it out to a purple and blue batik fabric. I’ll make a block and decide. I have the pieces for the sized Bonnie created, just starting to put together and still making the extra block pieces. Back to the fun.

Feather n fur- Thank you for the tip. I just started piecing a second set of those borders and the stay stitch saved my sanity!

I finished the last two blocks yesterday and thought I'd decided on a final setting, had the rows pinned for sewing...had another thought in the night I'll be unpinning them later today. My working wall is a gift to my imagination but there are So Many ideas!

I edge-stitched those, too. I used a really small stitch and did the edge-stitching before I removed the paper, so it kept the strips from stretching, but the very small stitches didn't make the paper removal difficult.

I have all of my blue 1/2 squares cut out and sewn, need to square then and iron. My purple blocks just need to iron the small pieces and sew together. I’mliking My fabric change. Need to make 4 more stripes of the small tourques 1/2 sqs and the 3 piece blocks needs extra blocks. Have not figured out how many. I’m making progress. My goal to have the top together by 2 weeks. I’m really going to like my changes and this quilt. My game plan to get up early and sew for a few hours.

Retiredteacher, i I like your quilt. Nice choices in fabrics. I’m enjoying seeing all the lovely finishes.

I finally finished my top last night. I did a 7x9 layout, but it wasn’t big enough so I added the red border with the extra 4 patches. It still wasn’t big enough, so I added the green border using the extra free HSTs. I’m fairly happy with it. I’m going to make a pieced back, so quilting will have to wait a bit.
