:: two quilts ... ::

In the interests of creating a bit of pressure to actually FINISH a quilt each for my children, I thought I'd post a couple of pics of where I'm up to ... two (only TWO!!) finished blocks each, and a few almost-finished blocks.  Not good.  At all. 

The first is to be purple and green, with a little bit of light blue.  Here's what I've done so far:

We're going with a randomly-sized log cabin design, which I figure I can square up later with a few solids.  Two finished blocks, and three started-blocks.  Not much light blue in evidence, though I see a bit of red and pink have crept in.  Very heavy on the Heather Ross designs I'm noticing too, and Lizzy House. 

OK and here's the second - it's to be light blue and yellow, with a little bit of red:

Each block in this one is to be a house - two finished so far - on the left and right.  And two kind-of-started-blocks.  There is to be an Alexander Henry little round-the-world person inside each house, so at least that's working so far.  And there's definitely a lot of yellow and red in evidence.  I need to bump up the light blue.   

So. A bit of work to be done.  Hopefully they'll be finished before anyone graduates high school and leaves home.
