We Can Do It! Skill Builder Quilt-A-Long

I'm a sucker for all of the quilt-a-longs that are running online. I feel it's a way to take a quilting class at your own pace and you get the support of the online community.  I joined in on the   BWS tips button

Mostly because I'm not famillar with traditional quilt blocks and thought this would be a good way to learn how to do some of them.  So here is the proof I've started.  My first 4 blocks. I'm trying to use some of the fabric I have so I decided to make each block the same color pallet. 

 Log Cabin
 9 Patch
 Churn Dash
 Pinwheels
 I'm in love with the pinwheels. Might have to try some of these bigger for a baby quilt. 

It's not to late to start up.  All of the tutorials are great and the best part is you can do it at your pace. I know some of you might think I'm crazy for starting this while expecting. But I figure I can take a little break when baby comes, and hopefully have that hour a week to put together the block.
