For my first block, I chose an applique design based on this beautiful doll quilt I found on pinterest.

For my second block, I'd wanted to use paper-piecing, but so many of the girls did, and they did such a good job, I decided to go with patchwork instead. I pulled up my pinterest quilts board and saw this beauty that I pinned a long while back.

And that's my two blocks. I'm happy with them. Actually, I'm inspired to whip something up for Valentine's Day for our house now. Both of these designs were quick, although the applique was SOOOOO much quicker, that I might just do that.
Now that all of the blocks for this quilt are ready, I am going to spend some time this week laying them out, playing and deciding on a sashing fabric. I asked Chris what he thought and he suggested purple because "Red and purple go together, you know like the old ladies wear in that hat society." But I was thinking black. We'll see. I'll lay it all out and audition both colors just to be fair. ;-)
