Design Wall Monday

I have something on the design wall besides a patriotic quilt! Imagine that!! For those of you that didn't get a chance to see all 15 Honor Flight quilts, click here. They are all done and delivered! Woo Hoo!!

I pulled out my Judy Niemeyer Stepping Stones quilt and began working on that again. Here's the progress so far. (I can't believe that I started this in March and am just now getting back to it!)
I had to finish piecing the last 12 blocks and decide the layout. The column to the far left is pieced and waiting patiently for the neighboring columns to be done as well. I still have to piece the borders and I hope to get to that later this week, but I have a lot to do this week so my quilting time will probably be very limited. :-(

While I was piecing the final 12 blocks, I was sewing long strips together for another Margarita Sunrise quilt as a leader/ender project. I guess that I should call it Berry Bliss Sunrise since I'm using a Berry Bliss Bali Pop this time instead of a Margarita Mango one. Berry Bliss Sunrise reminds me of an ice cream flavor. YUMMMMM..... Click here to see the original Margarita Sunrise Quilt, which is quilted, trimmed and ready to be bound.
I have three quilts that are quilted, trimmed and ready to be bound plus another that is ready for quilting. I'm excited to be getting things done, but when I reach this point with quilts, it never fails that I find another project that I want to start or one that NEEDS to get done right away.

I also pulled out my hexagon project and started working on that again while watching the baseball game last night. Here's what it looked like the last time I posted about this project. I have to count how many I have completed (over 50, I know), and take some time to lay this out and decide how much bigger it's going to get.

I guess I should look at it from a different perspective. It sure is good to have so many options from which to choose, right?

Take a look what other quilters have on their design walls today. Go to Judy L.'s Patchwork Times and be prepared to be amazed!

The stepping stones quilt is great, but I just love your hexagons and hope you keep going on them.
