Month Two -- Pat Sloan's Globetrotting Block of the Month

I plan to join these blocks once they are all quilted.  There are a few methods that work for quilt-as-you-go:  one involves adding fabric strips and another involves simply stitching the blocks together using existing borders/sashings.  I will give some hints on joining the blocks at the end of the year.

I'm ready to quilt Chicago next:
