Blocks new and old

Finished making the blocks for this quilt……

OxenreiderNow I have to sew the blocks together and make the three borders.  First border is a small plain black as kind of a frame, and the second and third borders are the leftover fabrics sewn in scrappy elongated blocks.  Not today though – I put this project away as I moved on to something else.

This is the second block for the Fat Quarter Shop Designer Mystery block of the month.

Please come back tomorrow to visit my blog as I will have a HUGE SURPRISE.
