My Quilt in Progress

I'm having so much fun this month!  I recently shared a tutorial for a block that I will be using to create a quilt for my own bed.   I am having fun auditioning fabric and creating a block here and there. 

A few days ago, I made this one:

Yes, this block is going into a quilt for my own bed.  It's not going to be dignified, elegant, or sophisticated.  Plenty of time to make one of those later.   What it IS going to be is fun!  This is is what's up on the design wall so far . . .

Lots of blue and orange so far.  Time to add some new colors.   Hmm, how about some yellow or green or purple?    Or all three?  Ha!  Ha!  All laid out and ready to sew . . .

Here are some pairs I'm probably going to add next . . .

After these, I'm thinking something with green.

In the meantime, I have these goodies coming in the mail.  These super cute floral blocks are coming from Debbie Huber.  Thanks, Debbie!

And these are coming from Mary Ann.  Mary Ann, I love all the bright colors you chose for these!

I will have fun sewing more blocks, getting blocks in the mail, and showing you my collection as it grows!
