Quilty goodness

Perhaps you remember saying that I'd like to have a wall of quilts. I started my hexagons, which oddly enough, have still not been sewn together. So much for finishing my 4th of July quilt. At least that happens every year.

Partially to blame for the unfinishedness (a new word I think), was my new stack of 5" squares. They were just so yummy and cute I had to start using them. Awhile ago I stumbled across this tutorial at Allsorts blog, which is a great blog by the way. Anyway, she used much bigger squares, so it was a little difficult maneuvering my tiny ones. (BTW, check out her awesome quilt!)
I just love how this is coming out. (I also just realized these pictures are quite blurry.) Don't look too closely, or you'll notice that the squares in between don't quite match up right.
All I have to do is quilt it and then do the binding. That should be an experience.

I also paper pieced a few more blocks from Amy Karol's mailorder.
I think that I should have put some border in between the blocks, but they're sewn together now, and they're going to stay like that. I also have to quilt this one. I'll probably do them at the same time. I just have to work on getting fabric for the backs.

Thanks for all the congrats on the 100th post. Don't forget to comment on the post below if you want to enter for the giveaway.

There was some excellent stuff in that box, wasn't there? I spent a good hour just sorting it, arranging it, petting it, lol.

Your quilts look good. Do you plan to hand quilt or machine quilt? I would really like to try quilting but am afraid a little afraid of the actual "quilting" involved. I'm thinking that I would like machine quilting better.

Looks like someone has been busy lately. (Did you get your camera cord yet?)

OMG, I love your adorable quilt! Thanks you so much for the lovely fabrics. I'm jealous that you have something made already. I'm hoping to work on mine before I start thinking about christmas projects. Thanks again!
