New Day, New Block

Still not feeling motivated enough to tackle the borders on the Carolina Crossroads Mystery quilt. I really need to get that one finished. It's a gift for a special friend who's done so much for me that he really deserves a quilt.

Here are the blocks I made for the September BOM for my quilting guild, the Bayside Quilters. As most of you know the BOM is a favorite and almost universal activity of every quilting guild. If you don't know how this works, each month we get pattern. Each member who makes a block puts it in the "kitty" and gets a chance to win all of the blocks.
I made three this time, one to keep and two to swap. I'm hoping that having two blocks will increase my chances to win.

A few years ago I was incredibly lucky and one several times. I used those blocks to make fours quilts as gifts. Having a ready made stash of blocks sure made my gift giving easy that year.
