Quilts in Progress - 2 on the go

Yesterday had me quilting the 'Black and White and Red All Over' babyblanket.  I like it!  I chose straight lines at a variety of widths apart.  


I like that it gives a modern sleek look to a very flowery busy quilt top.  I like the design contrast.  Meandering free motion quilting would have just pushed the business of it over the top.


My next move was to put all the blocks of my Courthouse Country quilt top together... only to realize that I don't have enough.  Furthermore, I ran out the fabric I needed to make more.  Typical.  So I drove all the way across town to get these coordinates.  The fabric store closest to me had shipped them all over there. 


Aren't they great!?  Of course, I bought more than I needed.  I only ran out of the first yellow floral print.  They were all on sale for 4-6 dollars a meter!  I couldn't resist.  I'm quite sure I'm going to take them all and make a big flying geese quilt.
