City Sampler At Your Own Pace Linky Party

Today is the 15th of the month and that means that it is time to show off your progress on your City Sampler for the At Your Own Pace Quilt Along.  I can't wait to see what all of you have been up to.
For myself, I don't have a ton to show you since a month ago but I have gotten to make a few blocks.  At the pace I'm going it will be a while before I complete them all but I'm ok with that.  This is a no schedule, no pressure quilt along.

So I made block #4.
And then I made block #5.  I like it but the more I looked at it and I thought about it, the fact that the cross design isn't so visible with the busy corner pieces, the more it bugged me.
So the next time I was able to get in some sewing time, I swapped out the corner bits for something less loud and I like the block this way better.  The cross is definitely recognizable now.
Next, as I mentioned before, instead of working on #6 next, yet another cross design, I headed over to the next chapter Rectangles and made block #16.
Then came block #17.
Here is my block #18 and as other have said before me, why the Purple photographs as Blue sometimes I have no clue.
Happily I was able to use up the swapped out pieces from block 5 in my version of block #19.
And to round out my 5 before I move onto the next chapter, this is block #20.
Here is my gallery of blocks so far.  I'm really having fun making these and love that they are a nice little break from the quilting and binding I've been doing lately with other quilt tops.

So now it is your turn to link up to show your progress so far.  Hopefully by next month, I'll have more to share.
