Park Bench Progress

In between all the other quilts I am currently working on, each month I still make time to work on the blocks for my Park Bench quilt.  This amazing Jaybird Design quilt was placed on my Bucket List as soon as I laid eyes on it.  And I love it more and more each month as I make progress on my own.

 I am always intrigued by the shapes required for these blocks.  Every time I cut them out, I end up creating new designs and shapes.  If you haven't used Jaybird Designs' Hex N More and Sidekick rulers, they really are pretty slick!

With these two blocks finished, I only have 5 more to go.  These two blocks for me were the hardest to date.  I kept losing track of the fabric placement and there were a lot of intersections to line up.  But they were definitely worth all the frustration!

They make me feel so proud when I walk into my sewing room where they are prominently displayed!

I love your "clothesline" display! Might have to copy that. I take it your two design walls are full??!! This is on my bucket list too, and I think I have some birthday money from my mum that I still haven't spent...ch-ching!
