Spring Thaw

Spring has finally sprung and I'm feeling revived and refreshed!  I'm beginning to think I have that seasonal depression that comes with winter, I just felt so unlike myself the whole winter and couldn't get motivated to do much during that time.  I had such big plans and all that seemed to happen was that I purchased things to do but never got them done, and boy did my sewing room show it (another post for another day).  I did start a block of the month in February which helped start getting me ready to start sewing again.  At my favorite quilt shop one of the teachers started the Park Bench Quilts block of the month

I decided that I wanted to use batiks in my quilt top so here is what I've got happening
February Blocks
March Blocks

April Blocks

I'm really liking these batiks and cannot wait to get the entire quilt top finished!
One of the ladies from our quilt guild spends the winter in Florida and while she was in Florida she had the opportunity to see this quilt block being put together

But didn't know what the pattern was called and I searched the internet high and low and couldn't find it so I sat down with Excel and created my own and this is what I ended up with minus the sashing
I wanted the graduated colors as well and lucked out that my favorite quilt shop had 1 left that I almost missed out on as another customer had picked it up and carried it around but decided to go a different way and laid it back down so it was my fortune to be able to pick it up.  I'm gonna try to find another jelly roll if possible to have.
Well I know this has been a long post and hopefully I don't wait so long to post again!
Until next time!
