Progess...slow but steady or this may be a painful read

I find myself scatter brained lately. I am unable to focus on things or read complete sentences. I have no clue what it is that is going on in this brain of mine but I hope that things improve. I have been working on quilt No.3, and amazingly No.2 is finished. I can't figure out a good way to take a picture of it though with good sunlight but I am working on that.

This picture shows the progress of No.3 and how it goes from the nine patch to a really pretty blend of small squares and rectangles amongst the larger squares. (wow is this post even making sense haha) You can check out a closer view on my flickr.

Here are the fabrics that I picked for quilt No.4 already. No clue what pattern I plan to make or follow but the fabrics are picked. I am going to call this the "sweet" quilt because that is the word that comes to mind when I look at these fabrics. Any pattern suggestions? Makes me think of my obsession with Hello Kitty and pink and I even used to have a banana seat bike just like the one pictured.
Still working on last minute post cards from this post so if you are interested in joining still leave me a message.

Love the block! I may have to try this pattern too! It looks so pretty with all the Freshcut fabric.
Not sure what to recommend for you for the next one - have you looked through Flikr? There are always great quilt ideas there...

Nice idea to use a clothes line. I love all of these fabrics. HB and AB are two of my favorite fabric designers. Great combination in your blocks.

I'll check back to see the finished project.

those fabrics are gorgeous, katie.

have you ever made custom quilts for people? i'm curious how much you charge! i was planning on making a quilt for my little one when he/she arrives, but i don't think that's gonna be happening!
