Still Making Blocks and Things

 One of the best things about late spring and summer is that all the meetings wrap up and obligations slow down.  I feel as if my time has finally an opening for me to do what I like.  I began a new project because I needed some variation.  Homespun Hearth, a quilt shop that also has an online presence, has a mystery QAL going and I'm downloading the blocks as they come out.  Unfortunately, they are only free for 2 days; I missed the 8th block but since it's a sampler I can insert something else.  
 I'm enjoying making these. 
Aunt Dinah, Chinese Coin and Five Spot blocks.
 I think I have all of the blocks I need for the Swirls and Whirls quilt. I'll begin putting it together this week hopefully. 

I have a column of blocks not shown here because I ran out of space. There is no sashing so I'll be playing with placement.  It has a nice border of scrap squares.  
Have a wonderful week.
God Bless You!

The blue blocks are my favourite. Your Swirls and Whirls quilt is going to be great. Can't wait to see it with its border.
I'm glad that things have slowed down for you so you can get some quilting in.
