Orca Bay step #2

I have finished step #2 for the Orca Bay mystery quilt. http://quiltville.blogspot.com/p/orca-bay-mystery.html
It was a lot of fun putting together these 3.5" string blocks.72 of them finished. I  started out using computer paper for foundation...didn't work well too hard to rip off. Then I used newspaper, ahhh it worked very well and came off so easily. I really enjoyed putting the shades of blue/purple/and gold together.  And certainly used up a lot of scrap fabric.
Waiting for the next step.
Have a great Day!
