Design Wall Monday -- 05/02/2011

Here are this month’s completed blocks for the Civil War Chronicles quilt.  I enjoyed these fabrics much more than the previous ones as purple is one of my favorite colors.  Also, there were no directional prints this month so it was easier to put the blocks together, but they were still labor intensive.

Our temperature hit the 90s yesterday then plummeted to the 40s last night.  Unfortunately, the front did not bring us the rain we hoped for, but at least we should have a very pleasant week with moderate temperatures. 

Our community has a series of ponds, and this time of year is when the resident turtles start moving around.  This guy somehow got in the yard, but could not find a way out.  Bob helped him get to the other side of the fence so the dogs would not bother him.

Check out the links at Patchwork Times to see what other quilters are up to.

Beautiful blocks. The turtle is so cute. We have the desert tortoise here but you don't see them often.

Lovely blocks. I am so glad you were able to help the turtle, hope he finds his way home.

Beautiful blocks! Hope you get some rain soon. I'd gladly share some of what we've gotten.

Very pretty blocks! Love the purples. Hope you get some rain soon--I bet Mr. Turtle does too.

I like those blocks - they do look as though they are a LOT of pieces!!
