A new quilting project

I've been sewing tonight.  After a break from the sewing machine and lots of evenings doing crochet or knitting, it's been lovely to sew again.

Craftsy are doing a free online quilting course, Block of the Month  
Each month you make two quilt blocks and by the end of the year you've made 20 odd blocks and quilted it.  Great idea!
I'm using fabric from my stash, though I did order some ruby red plain fabric to use too.

The first two blocks are 'sew and slash', quite quick and easy to make.  

Here is the asterisk block:

and the wonky hash tag:

I'm looking forward to the next two blocks!
