May Day and Spring Quilts

I've not had very much time to quilt this week. We got a new furnace and new a/c and since my sewing room opens into the furnace closet thing it's I haven't been able to get in for a few days. Yes, it took a few days. They had to do some creative vent work. We also didn't have any vents in our basement at all so we were freezing down here all winter. Anyway, I started a dresden plate block.

I've used a layer cake from Sweet. I know what I'm going to use for the center, but I don't have that fabric. I did hand applique the first block and used the fabric I'll use for the center on that, but I only had one layer cake square. I'm not done, but I'll show a picture when I am.

I'm loving this line. It's so much fun and so, so springy! Just what we need at this time of year.
