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.
