More Quilts In Progress...

Here are a couple more quilts that I'm working on... Yes, I know it is way past Valentine's Day, but this is actually going to be a quilt for my husband. I am very lucky to have a husband who agrees with me that Valentine's Day should be celebrated every day. Good thing, because I think I might miss my deadline for this quilt. I'm hoping to at least have the quilt top done by the end of February. I am using Moda's L'Amour fabric by Sandy Gervais. I love using panels. My way of cheating, I guess. It gets the quilt done faster. :)

I don't really have a design laid out, but I knew I wanted to try a nine-patch this time. So, I've made several nine-patch blocks into "X's and O's". I'll probably just place them all around the panel somehow.

And here's another quilt I've started on...

This is going to be for my step-sister and her soon-to-be husband. They will be getting married in March. Her colors are pink and green, and she really liked this fabric, Moda's Eden by Lila Tueller. The entire collection also includes a bunch of purple floral fabrics, but I will just be using the pinks, greens, and yellows. It will be a signature quilt, so I also have some white fabric for people to sign. I will have a little envelope with the white fabric squares at the tables at her wedding, along with some fabric pens, and a description of the signature quilt project. I'll have people write a little something (congratulations, marriage advice, etc) on the white squares. Then, after the wedding, I will put the quilt together. I'm excited to see if everyone participates, and to see the final product! :)

Here's an example block. I like using bigger pieces of fabric, so the blocks are bigger... making it faster to put the quilt together. :) Plus, I'm still scared to do any other shapes besides squares/rectangles. :/ I never thought I'd be afraid of shapes! LOL!
