March block of the month

Here is my March block. The fabrics look so much better in real time. They have some shiny gold patterns going through them. This one was a lot of work, mainly because I put the center block together twice; once I did it the wrong way, and then I took it apart and did it the right way. I prefer doing it the right way! 
I can't wait to finish my April block. It has a pretty pattern too. 
Thanks for looking!

I'm Back and Something new

Okay, I have something for you to see...finally. I have been working on stuff-not my crafts or art, but family stuff. Needless to say, it hasn't been as fun as working on my projects. So, here are a couple of pictures of the quilt top I am working on. It is part of the block of the month club from Crafts Direct in St. Cloud, MN. They have a pretty big store and it is one of my favorite places to visit!

This first one is the January quilt block. It 12 1/2" square. When I was editing the picture I forgot to keep the proportions equal. So, just imagine it is square, thanks!

The second block-above-is, you guessed it!-February. I didn't like it when I saw the pattern, but after I put it together it kinda made it's way into my heart. The fabrics are so beautiful in "real life." That dark purple really sticks out doesn't it?  This is a lot of piecing but I am only working on one block per month so it goes pretty good. I need to get my March block done still. I'll post it in a couple of weeks. 

Thanks for looking! I'd appreciate any comments.
