Quilt Blocks

I made this block this morning and as you can see it's the ShoFly Block.  I didn't know if I liked the colors but it's very pretty especially in person.  There is orange and what I'm calling two grays in the block. 
This is the same block but it looks so different.  These are more my colors but again I like the one above.
See this block below?  It's the same one as above but I sewed the bottom row wrong.  I was so mad that I didn't even take it out for a week as I had already taken a row of stitches out and resewed!  I'm glad to have it finished!  But I like to sew the blocks the very best.  I think I might like to quilt if I had a machine that was up to it.  So I just keep making blocks, sewing them into tops and very few things get finished.  But it makes me happy and it's a stress reliever.  I didn't just say that!  This block was a stress er!  But it's done.
The sun is shining and another day of heat.  I'd love to see it in the 60's for a few days as there are lots of weeds that need to be pulled.  I guess that I'll make blocks until it's cooler.
Have a great day/evening!!
