Just Call Me (Quilt) Block Head. Its A Good Thing!

Who is also quilting along with the Old Red Barn Co.? If you are a quick cutter/sewist, there's still time to join the fun! The grand prize is a Janome 6600P! We are in week 4, so there are three weeks left to the quilt along. I finished pressing and cutting my blocks this morning and will begin sewing them together tonight. Here's a look at my blocks:

I've also been working on two other quilts that aren't nearly as finished as I'd like them to be!! First is a hexagon quilt:

This is almost half the blocks I need. The fabrics look very subdued compared to the other quilts I'm working on!

Then there's my double pinwheel quilt. I love the bright colors of this one!

I'm using Baskets of Flowers by Mary Engelbreit for Moda Fabrics. I'll be working on these three quilts all week along with completing more 9 patch blocks for Amanda Jean's quilt along. Lots to do!

What are you working on???

I love the double pinwheel; the colors are so cheery. =-)
You have sooo many projects going at once! I'd be hyper-ventilating if I had that many going! =-)

Currently I'm working on a really big one for my oldest daughter. It's all applique' and today I just figured out that I'm also putting some applique' on the back, so it'll be a double-sided quilt.
Crap! Saying that suddenly puts the pressure on me! I need a better plan! Ack!

Your quilts look wonderful! I love the pinwheel one...such great fabric combos you've got going there! I'm going to do a log cabin quilt this summer! I'm so excited to start!

I have the ME charm pack, and have been wondering what to do with it. I love the way you are putting it together. (My WIPs abound...closest to being worked on sewing-wise is the girl's dress. Gotta make it before she outgrows it!)

My gosh you've got lots going on! I'm still trying to get motivated to finish some things up.

Love the new header! Elvis really adds a lot:)

Great stuff you are working on and Oh my, are you busy. Can't wait to see them all finished.

I am working on a simple pair of pants. A bloggy friend asked if I could make her some ruffle pants so I am seeing if I can. Other than that, we are busy, busy with camp, T-ball, park, walks and all the other fun stuff that comes with summer. By the way, when are you gonna make it out this way?? How is your summer looking?

I love the Moda fabric! That is going to be a wonderful quilt. Good luck with all of your projects - I need your motivation!

i'm working on keeping my sanity...we are two days into summer vacation. :) and counting. i'm sure after our adjustment period, it will get better.
