As ye sew, so shall ye rip

I spent a hunk of today ripping all the pieced setting strips (the strips between blocks) out of a queen sized quilt. I just didn't like them and will replace them with plain black strips. There were 42 strips, each with 9 pieces. That's a lot of wasted sewing and fabric, but they just didn't look right between the blocks. Hopefully this will work better, since I have to get the quilt to my machine quilter friend next week.

AACK!! I think about all the time that's lost making then removing these setting strips and and I just cringe. Hope I can get this done on time.
