I Said I'd Be Quilting So...

What am I up to?
Nothing major; just two simple quilts.

As my sister--who was visiting--and I were
just saying, for those of us who don't quilt
year-round, it's often best to "warm up" before
stepping into anything remotely complicated.
And I still have one foot in the garden these days
so I have to be able to deal with distraction.

The heat is causing most of our blackberries to fizzle, but not these beauties!

Anyhoo, here we go: 
Remember this quilt from a couple of years ago?

Size-wise (lap), it's one of my favs to curl up with
and I thought it'd be a good way to use up
some charm packs I'm wanting to move out.

I'll have more pics soon but I'm going with a white
sashing and some spring-y/summer-y colors.

My sister seemed to be having a good enough time at
the machine and I was enjoying the new height at which
to cut things out so I thought I'd just cut out a second
quilt, using up a pack of fat-quarters in the process.
I'm thinking ahead to the Shop Hop in October.  I have to move out
a substantial amount of fabric before I feel it's okay to buy more!

I'm also making this very easy/simple quilt:

The colors in my fat-quarter pack will not be
as pretty as above, but I'm okay with that. 

Two seconds post-picture-taking, my cat had a grand ol' time tearing through this.
I'm not sure how I feel about the beige/white fabric going with white
sashing but, as I said, these are not special quilts.  If I decide I don't
like it, however, I guess I can look around for a replacement...tho
at a glance, I didn't see anything.  I must be getting stuff used up
better than I thought.

As I said, warming up, and I may not 
even keep either quilt.
