Fat Quarter Shop Mystery Designer BOM #3

This is the third block for the Fat Quarter Shop's Mystery Designer Block of the Month club. I get so excited when these blocks come. There is such immediate gratification when I get one completed. This one took me about an hour and 15 minutes total, cutting, sewing and trimming.

The block is called Weather Vane by Barbara Groves and Mary Jacobson of Me and My Sister Designs. Another great HST skill builder.

Clearly my cutting was a little sloppy on this block, my lines were only so-so.

I realize my blog has been quiet...we had friends here from Colorado (the ones we visited in March) and spent time with them for a few days. It was supposed to rain so we planned a day at Mystic Seaport and then Mystic Aquarium so that we could be mostly indoors. It ended up being a really ok day weather-wise.

Their son is the same age as our daughter...and clearly...they get along really well.

I'm working on some baby quilts that I am MADLY in love with. The thing is, I have to give them to the moms-to-be first, then I can post pictures. Don't want to give away any of the goodness!
