Lady of the Salty Lake...

Well my goal for this month was to finish my Sisters' Ten blocks early in the month to avoid the scramble of the last week...oh well.  At least it's not the very, very last days of the month, right?  The block for April is Lady of the Lake and to be honest, I was not all that jazzed about this one.

All those half square triangles to mark, sew and press and the design just wasn't all that exciting to me (probably one of the reasons that I didn't jump all over it at the beginning of the month).  And yet...once I decided to vary the fabrics on the outer triangles and saw all of them coming together, I started to change my mind.

In fact, this just might be my favorite block that I've done so far.  So much so that I made two identical blocks.  How the heck did that happen?  The power of the Tula, I tell you.

I'm really liking how the group is coming together - I think that next month marks the halfway point for blocks. Yay!

Check out the flickr group for the Sisters' Ten BOM to see what everyone else is creating!
