QuiltCon block #1

After reading about the QuiltCon Block Challenge, I decided to try and make 3 blocks to send in before the August 15 deadline.  I know there's no way one of my blocks will make it into Elizabeth Hartman's favorite 20 (I mean have you seen some of the blocks?), but all the remaining blocks will be used to make quilts for Austin Children's Shelter.  How awesome is that?  So after choosing some appropriate fabric from my stash

I cut and sewed a disappearing nine patch panel and framed it with white borders.
A little busy, but not bad.  At least most of my points are matched up.  Now off to plan block #2!
