Progress is slow

I've been moving slowly forward with a few projects.  Of course there is never enough time to do everything I'd like!

This is the center of a new quilt top.  Years ago (we won't worry about how many years) I had purchased these fabrics to make drapes.  I do love the patterns and figured they would make the perfect duo for this newbie to play with. 

I find that each block pattern I learn becomes my favorite, so log cabin blocks and all of their glorious possibilities are my current love.

But of course I'm eager to learn as much as I can as fast as I can so next up is chevrons...

The Ann Arbor Modern Quilt Guild has a crayon challenge going.  I was super lucky to get the most lovely shade of green!  So I have begun playing with designs. 

I only have till the November meeting to get this one done.  Seems like forever yes?  Well, as I have yet to complete an entire quilt this will indeed be a challenge for me!

I have a few block of the month projects going and am scoping out patterns for Christmas patterns so hopefully I'll have more to share soon :)
