Judy,

That is FABULOUS and the backing fabric you've picked out is just perfect!  Good job!

Oh, my, Ami, I just love the predictability of that nice crisp square of paper. Guess it is my librarian's soul that likes perforating paper .... LOL

As long as I'm on a kick of taking photos, here are my laundry baskets of fabric strips ... do ya think I'll have enough to make 24 more blocks? (Yes, Judy, you will have enough fabrics ... that was a very dumb question.)

And here's a photo of sixteen of the 16-patch blocks I am creating as I stitch the ten-inch red and neutral paper foundation blocks. Those 16-patchers (and more) will eventually go into a scrap quilt that was shared in the thread on using up your scraps.

Thank you very much, Cris.  Enthusiasm from forum members will keep me going when I get bogged down in boredom.  LOL

Looks like you have lots of strips there so hopefully you will have plenty but not a ton leftover either. Love the 16 patch you are making along side of the strings.

Judy,  I love it when I can work on two quilts at once.  Way to accomplish much!

I have been working on some more of my Dear Jane blocks.  I have some real doozies left to do.  A couple of these are just time consuming.  But that circle one!  I am rather proud of myself for just accomplishing it!

It is actually made of two pinwheels blocks, the circle appliqued onto the other one.  The hard part for me was the reverse applique of the background frame!  I just haven’t done any…..but I have more blocks that need it.

It it doesn't turn out like you imagine, doesn't do the blue couch justice, I know of a brown couch that it would look lovely on.

Jo, that's a good try, but I think that DD will grab this red and neutral quilt and you won't stand a chance.

I spent years just using "thread bunnies" when I sewed off the end of a seam but then I eventually realized that if I planned ahead I could make those scrappy things instead. And then I found that there were merchants on Etsy.com who sold bundles of assorted 2.5 inch squares in all kinds of odd fabric colors and patterns .....
