New Blocks

I thought I'd show you some blocks I've been working on. They are my version of the block of the month that we are working on at the Sandy Stitchers Quilt Guild. We were given a pattern for either a 6 or 12 inch block. I knew I wanted to get a large quilt out of the twelve blocks so you would think I would choose the 12 inch block...wrong! I choose the 6 inch block, mainly because I liked the way they looked best and added borders to make my block finish at 20 inches. I own the Accuquilt feathers dye and wanted to try it so this is what I came up with. 
January
 
February
 
March 
April
 You have probably noticed that the January block uses a deeper value than the others, don't worry I will be adding deeper values in the blue and green too.
I'm working on a few other projects and will get back with them this week. I need to get pictures and organize.
