Quilt Blocks

I've been working on some quilt blocks the last few days. First up, I made this star block for the Believe circle of do. Good Stitches. It will go in the mail tomorrow, last minute again.

It's 16.5 inches square, "boy" colors were requested.

Granny squares... I've been working on these off and on for a few weeks:
7 granny blocks 
I need to get a better collection of gray prints. Oh I made one more of these today too, it's green and gray. So pretty.

And finally I added a bunch of blocks to my scrappy block pile:

This is an ongoing project that I'm not in a huge hurry to finish. I think I've been making blocks like this for about a year, whenever I feel like it. The blocks are 6.5" square and I have 42 of them done so far. I'm shooting for 80 for a nice throw size quilt. I sorted them into rainbow order last night and I only have 2 purple and 2 or 3 pink, so those are colors I need to focus on in the next little while.

I have a bunch of quilting I need to do. I have one quilt with the quilting partly done (my king size quilt) and 4 other quilt tops that need to be quilted. (And at least 2 quilts in my head that I really want to make that aren't started at all.) I might look into ordering batting online and then I can get quilting!
