Centered--first blocks

I've decided to follow along with Sandra of MMM Quilts on the quilt along for her quilt Centered.  I liked the design when I first saw it, and when I realized you could use a jelly roll, I was sold.  I have a strip set of Sunset Blooms by Island Batik from my most recent Ambassador box and it's been burning a hole in my pocket, so to speak.  Here are the first half of my blocks, in the arrangement they will be in the completed quilt:


The color representation in this photo isn't the greatest but it gives you an idea of the range of colors.  I'm loving this so much!  I've seen Sandra's QALs in the past but have never played along.  This was the year, and the fabric!

Center of Centered
The color representation is more accurate in this photo of the center blocks.  Sandra is doing a clue a week, released on Fridays.  These 8 blocks sewed up fairly quickly once I figured out how I wanted my fabric placement, so there is still time if you want to join in the fun.

These will not be placed together like this.
I'm using Centered as my OMG, or One Monthly Goal, in the linky party hosted by Patty of Elm Street Quilts.  I'll consider my goal met if the top is completed but truth be told, I'd really like to finish this in May.
