Moda Blockheads: Round 2 {Block 44}

Now that we're in the final stretch of making blocks, you can begin to assemble the quilt-top! (The layout information can be found here.) I'm following the general layout (as far as which size goes where), but have been swapping blocks around (within their size groups) for optimal color balance. Here's a little peek as of a few weeks ago:

Oh and before I forget--my pattern of the month is Cottontail/Little Cottontail, which means it's only $5 in February.
