Spring has sprung here and the last of the azaleas are fading away. It has been rainy-ish and semi-cloudy for the past several weeks, and everything has greened up.

Things have been not so fun at work, but I have managed to get some good quilting time in, mostly on weekends. I finished my 'Castillo de San Marcos' wallhanging. I designed the block myself as part of a quilt guild challenge to make your own block to represent Florida. The block is based on an aerial view of the fort at St. Augustine. It is one of my favorite Florida attractions.

I finally finished the second crap quilt. I think I have been working on these blocks since 2009. I finished and posted the first crap quilt last year--my husband has it hanging in his office. I had so many crap blocks left over, I made a second quilt that is reversible--the front is dark text on a light background, and the back is light text on a dark backdrop. I like the back even better than the front. Some quilts I make for others, but this one is all mine.

I found 3 more crap blocks when I was cleaning out my sewing room the other day. No idea what they will become--pillows?
