A Block Here, A Block There

As I quilt along on my Winding Leaves summer quilt, I take a break now and then to do a block for fun. Here are a couple I did this week.
 This one I named Wisteria Morning. It's basically a Drunkard's Path paper pieced with a little something extra. I didn't like the solid circle in the middle, so I added extra lines to the piecing and wound up with more interest.
This one is Jack's Diamonds that I found on Quilter's Cache. That place is amazing with so many free blocks! I fussy cut all but the pinwheel in the middle. That was challenging but effective.

There are so many blocks I want to try. And I will eventually. I have my friend Jan to thank for my ever increasing love of paper piecing.
