Quilt a long - block 2

I am in love with the quilt sew along that I started in January. I am happy to say that I did finish my second block of the quilt in February. So much has been going on and I didn't want to bombard people with blog posts so I have spread them out.

I thought I'd talk about the quilt a long again because it's probably been forgotten. Time does that. My first block was a lot of fun. I haven't ever pieced a quilt together so this is quite a challenge for me. I love that I have friends nearby that can help me if I have trouble figuring out the pattern.

Block 1
The month of February was really interesting because the place we usually meet was being used. So we kind of did our own thing. I made mine the same night, just at home. I did much better after the kids went to bed. It seems like that's when I do my best work.

I really love the bright, vibrant blue in this one. I love how they look together. I've got some green that will be in the next block. I will be doing it a little early since quilt night is going to be the same night as book club. Things are a bit busy around here on Thursdays.

Don't they look great? Okay, that could be a bit much. I am just a bit proud of them. It's all coming together nicely.
