Blogs are even Better now

I've had a little blogger and crafting vacation for the past couple of weeks.  Now I'm back online and enjoying blogger even more reading them using my new ipad2.  The colors are oh so nice and now I can zoom in on photos better when available.  I resisted the ipad a for a while and finally decided to jump on the bandwagon since now I won't have to lug a laptop when DH has Dr's appointments and the battery last a long time.

In addition to blog reading on the ipad2, I am sooo addicted to playing the Angry Birds and Angry Birds Rio game!  It's funny how much an adult can act like a kid when we can't get past a certain level on a game.  Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.  Yesterday was beautiful here and now today's it's been nothing but rain.

Question for String Quilters

I'm probably 20 blocks into my 80 block string quilt.  It's moving right along but then I hit a roadblock with a question.  I saw on another blog (for the life of me I didn't bookmark it) that they were creating string quilt blocks on muslin.  I am making mine on paper squares and then removing the paper.  Basically like paper piecing the string quilt.  I could always fuse muslin on the blocks I've completed but not sure it's worth the effort. 

My question is this... how do you complete your string quilts?  Sewing on paper or sewing on muslin?  Thanks for your input!
