Quilt Con Block Challenge

 QuiltConChallenge2

I’ve completed my second block and I think two is good for me.  I originally thought I’d go ahead and make three, but I’ve too many other projects to work on…  story of a quilter’s life, right?  :-)  The thing that makes me really happy about this challenge is knowing that even if my blocks aren’t chosen for the Challenge quilt, they will be used in charity quilts.  and much less important, but still a good thing, the Challenge pushed me to look at construction and fabric in a different way.  Looking at the two blocks together gives me some fun ideas for another quilt.  someday.

those who know me are already aware that I’m a little stuck in the 70s, but I didn’t realize that “modern” to my quilting self also has the same vibe.  Ah well, do a little dance, make a little love and get quilting tonight!
