9 Blocks for my second quilt

At the Friday Night Sew In I worked on my second quilt for 'Tis the Season.  Unfortunately, I ran out of the variegated thread I'm using, so luckily, The Gardener's Journal Blocks were on hand.  Progress so far:

I love the background for this one.  Fabric from Homespun and Beautiful.  I think it adds so much interest, but it's still background.

Completed blocks for my second quilt - hoping they stand out a little more with borders.  Haven't even looked at fabric for this yet - have to raid my stash.  Hoping to get some time this week.

Work in progress on The Gardener's Journal Quilt.  The two blocks in the middle of the photo have been completed.  

The centre block from the quilt.  This is another part of my work for the Friday Night Sew In.

Some progress - just very slow!!
