finally found a quiet moment!

here are my blocks for sarah and jess, hooray for a baby who goes to bed earlier than i do! first, sarah's block:i decided to use fringe as my texture for this block. this was a stretch for me as i normally find unfinished edges unattractive, so i wanted to see if i could use them in a different way.
i'm pretty happy with the way it turned out, but i'm curious to know what it will look like after going through the wash a few times (assuming this is going to be a quilt that will be used and washed rather than, say, a wall hanging).

The second block I finished was Jess'my favorite part is the contrast between that lovely deep blue and the little piece of orange i used for my pop of color.i'm looking forward to seeing how both of these quilts turn out. Thanks for the great inspiration, ladies!
