So many of the blocks have been ones I've never made before, and I enjoy trying something new. Sometimes there's a new skill involved for me, so I'm learning as I participate, too! Here are the ones I've made this year.
Mar/April: These were interesting to make with the pleats in the center square and partial seams to join everything together! Now I can say I have done partial seams!
This week I've worked on a few for the May/June block drive, guest hosted by Cynthia of Quilting is More Fun than Housework. I remember these from one of Cynthia's Scrap-a-Palooza quilts, and would love to make a whole quilt of these!
The first one stitched up very quickly -
And before I knew it, I had a couple more. I love how the sashing is built in on these blocks - so brilliant!
The colors for this month's blocks are red, orange, yellow, and purple. I'm not sure about purple, but I know I can pull together a yellow one, and then I'll be sending them off to Cynthia who has so generously volunteered to sew the blocks together and quilt the tops, too.

Hope you're enjoying a wonderful weekend! I'm hoping to finally get to plant some flowers, now that it has finally warmed up after we got 4 inches of snow last Thursday! I'll also be checking out all the scrappy inspiration over at the Oh Scrap! linky at Quilting is More Fun than Housework.
