Where did it go?

It seems like it was the beginning of May yesterday, doesn't it?  Where did the past two weeks go?  Well, for me, the time has been spent working on my three blocks that consisted of Part 3 for the Heart's Desire quilt by Esther Aliu. (no pictures, just yet)

  On the fifteenth, Esther released the next part.....FOUR blocks for Part 4.  Yikes!!
And we cannot assemble any of the parts yet.  Esther tells the group that all will be revealed next month....I have my doubts as to whether I am going to be able to complete all four blocks for this part by next month.  B u t.....I did make a start. Finally.  I was so overwhelmed by the amount of work for each block...I think I got quilter's block....is there such a thing?  You know, like a writer gets writer's block and cannot write?  Well, when I saw the new block (which is beautiful, by the way), I froze.  Literally, my brain could not come up with anything.  It (my brain, that is) finally relaxed.  I chose some fabrics from my choices for this quilt for the corner flower pots.  Here are all the pieces, not assembled yet, but ready.

I have used the black/gold checkered fabric only in the center and here, as it does tend to really draw your eyes to it.
Now!  Time to work on some bias stems. :)

I think that there definitely is a quilter's block. And it's nasty. I've been working on a BOM and this month's job is to make sixteen blocks. I can't get myself to get through them and because of that I can't make myself sew anything else!! UGH!

I do love your blocks though - pretty fabrics and colors. I can't wait to see them all come together.
