Quiltville mystery part 3 done

I definitely don't think of this when I say neutrals! But they are actually tame compared to the examples Bonnie Hunter pictured in her instructions. I kind of held my nose and jumped in! Bonnie's directions said anything with a neutral background, so I rummaged and pulled and cut and used everything I could find that qualified with the exception of the white on white or cream on cream, which are only sparingly represented. I wanted this one to be scrappy and boy, I think I succeeded!

I am not a string block fan either...but I love these. I don't have enough of this type of fabric to make it work. I shy away from prints.
I am so glad you are doing this so I can see your results. So far it is beautiful. Where will the red fit in I wonder???

Your blocks are lovely. I am doing this mystery too, and I confess I do not like paper piecing these blocks! Sewing them isn't so bad, but pulling the paper off is no fun! I have 35 blocks made now and I will finish them, but I am not going to do any more!
