I finally got some free time to just sit and sew yesterday. I am glad to say that I am now all caught up on the blocks of the month. After my first two blocks I knew I was going to need some more background fabric so after a trip to the local quilt store (20 miles away) I selected a few different fabrics that kind of read gray - from light to dark - that I will be using for my background fabrics. I very carefully cut this fat quarter and was able, through piecing, to use it for all three of these blocks. So, here they are and at the end is a pic of all my blocks together. I reversed the courthouse steps and used a single fabric block for the center.
