Lots of stuff in progress

Swoon blocks 2 & 3  are complete

Not sure if I am loving the random approach to selecting the colors.  I like each block individually, and the 3 I've made so far look good together but I'm not sure where to go next with the color.  This quilt is nice to work on a little bit at a time.  I cut my pieces as I go and its really relaxing putting these together.  My next block is going to be aqua and red.  After that I have no idea.

Here is a pic of my two most recent zig zag rainbow quilts.  One was a gift for a baby girl just born this weekend and the other is for my son.

My favorite part is the black and white stripe binding.  Its the perfect border for these quilts.

I am almost done with a quilt I am making with these lovelies.
I love this collection!  It's Honey Child by Jennifer Paganelli.  The quilt is going to be a Christmas gift for one of the little girls in our family.  Its already basted, waiting to be quilted and bound.  I am just waiting on my Jaws quilt clips to come in the mail. This is the biggest quilt I have made so far and I am going to need all the help I can get to manage it through my machine.

The last work in progress is this

The circles will be extra poofy.  I used water soluble thread to go for the trapunto effect. 
I love all the colors!

Thanks for reading
