Saturday Block Bonanza

Well, it is Saturday, and I made some blocks, the bonanza is just to give the title a little pizazz.

I somehow seem to have signed up for a bunch of QALs of the past couple of weeks (see, my right side bar is getting so full!), and today I have a couple of blocks to share.
I like the idea of the easy pace of QALs and BOMs. It's easy to get bored sometimes, doing the same thing over and over and with these, you do one or two, then you're done for a few weeks, so it breaks up the monotony, and provides a chance to play with many of my fabrics all at one time.
This block is my first block for the The Great Granny Along. This is a QAL that is using a super-sized granny square block that finishes at 12.5 inches.

I used Bonnie & Camille's new line, Marmalade and Kona Snow for my first block. I think I'm going to make the whole quilt a B&C quilt using Ruby, Vintage Modern and now Marmalade.

On tomorrow's Sunday Stash I'll be showing the rest of the Marmalade fabrics I received.
My next block is the 2nd installment from the Fat Quarter Clubs 2012 Mystery BOM. This one is called Mint Julep and was designed by Lisa Bongean. It was made with Vintage Modern and came together very quickly.

My final block is for the BOM at In Color Order. I'm not totally happy with the fabrics I picked for this block. It's possible I may do a different composition at some point, but for now, here's July's block.
