Sick but not totally out of it.

I am just a bit under the weather with a sinus-y cold.  So I have been less productive.  I didn't make the Layer Cake Quilt Along Block 8 on the day it was released like I usually do.  I made it this afternoon and even though it was easy, I am tired already. 
Here is the block:

And just for fun, I am entering my Kaleidoscope block in the Quilt Story Block Party.  

Fresh Poppy Design





Now I am going either to bed or to my recliner.  I hate having a cold.  But at least I am better today than I was yesterday.  Tomorrow I plan to be back at work. (and I need to remember to take the soft facial tissue with me, just sayin')  Wish me well.  
Thanks!

I really like your Layer Cake block. Just made mine today too and now, after seeing yours, I wish that I had used 3 different fabrics instead of just two.
I'm so glad to see that you entered you Kaleidoscope block in the the Block Party! Good luck!!!!

I like your version of the block. I haven't done it yet, but will... Sorry to hear that you're under the weather, and hope you really feel well enough to return to work. Remember the tissues!

I'm so sorry you aren't feeling well, Gene! I hate having colds. I get so darn crabby! You're layer cake block is really great. Really modern and strong. Good luck in the Quilt Story Contest. I think that block is a winner for sure!

Nice block for the quilt-along and, of course, you already know I love the kaleidoscope block. Be well today (and don't over-do it).

Cutting and machine sewing always makes me tired, no excuse for me though like being sick. It just does. It's a pretty block! Feel better.

Love the block, Gene...those three colors work fabulously together! And so sorry to hear that you're down with a cold - they are the worst, aren't they? Hope you are feeling much better soon!

XOXO,
