Lots of Piecing

While I've been getting things in order for my screen printing work space and waiting on a few items that I ordered to make printing sessions easier, I have been doing some quilt construction.  My pile of quilts that need to be quilted is growing like crazy. Why is it so much easier to start a new quilt than to finish one that is already started?

The quilt above is made with Alison Glass fabric. I used both Handcrafted and Handcrafted 2 fabrics and the block is called Flowering Snowball. I found the block in my EQ program, but I ended up altering it slightly. . . so I guess it should be called Altered Flowering Snowball?

The block above is called Tallahassee and I found it at Lots of great blocks at that site. I didn't following directions when making the block, however. I decided to change up the orientation of the block parts and came up with what you see above.

I'm really loving how the spinning stars quilt (above) is looking. This was a free pattern by Anna Maria Horner. I did alter the pattern though. In the original pattern the finished block size is 18". I wanted a smaller block and I also wanted to construct it with the paper piecing method. So I resized it and made paper piecing templates. My block size is 14". I don't know how big this quilt will end up, I'll just keep making blocks until I don't want to anymore or I run out of fabric.
