Another scrappy (stringy) top

I wanted to use up some of the strings I have been hording saving for a rainy day project.
These were paper pieced in sets to triangle papers that I die cut with my GO.

I like the way this is turning out.  For a faster way to get a similar effect, one could sew strips and then die cut.  I was specifically trying to use up odd size scraps.

Didn't even make a dent--lol

30 blocks (6 x 5) don't go very far, this one may get borders before it is done.

Happy 4th of July (Independence Day) and Happy Anniv. (Dependence Day)

A picture is worth a 1000 words, but I will add a few that are on my heart. 
I love my husband and I love my family, I love my friends, I even love my enemies . 
As a quilter I am blessed to be able to express my thoughts in creative ways. 
This is our anniversary block that will be in a memory quilt someday. 
 'United we Stand'... one nation, (one community, one family, one soul), under GOD. 
What was on God's heart when he joined me and Carl together? 
Have we done the best we could to bring honor to this union. Are we an example of God's blessings to each other and our family?
Today we celebrate our Nation's Independence, bring on the family get togethers. 
Tomorrow we will quietly celebrate our committed dependence to each other. 
May the next 33 yrs be twice the work and twice the reward- Grow old with me......
