Start of a new quilt, finish of an old one

This is the start of, YES ANOTHER, new quilt. As I was stitching the binding down on another UFO, I started thinking about a new quilt using my stash of pink, orange and yellow Kaffe Fassett fabrics. When I was at the local quilt shop, I found the nicest background for these bear paws. It's a creamy/beige modern weave print. It is subtle enough to allow the Kaffe to pop and with just a hint of warmth. 
These blocks are large ... About 14" sq. I think I'll make 20 blocks...that should make a decent sized quilt...with sashing and maybe a few borders. 

I've been cutting and cutting...going to need a pile of HSTs and 2-1/2" squares.



And here's a quick little project I squeezed in...it's going to be a pillow. Where? No idea. It was going to be for my foyer seat but the color needs to be toned down a bit for in there. So I'm thinking it would be cute in the TV/sewing room...on the couch. 




And here's my latest finish. This fabric line is from Moda called HONEY. Originally I was going to add a flying geese border around it but after looking at it a while I decided something simpler would be better. 


I ended up with the geese on the back (color is horrible in this pic)


And here's my latest fabric finds! The local shop is carrying a BEAUTIFUL line of Art Gallery Fabrics! Yum! Had to buy a little of that, of course.

Thanks Anna. I cut 20 solid squares from 10 different colors. Most were solids that the shop had next to the Kaffe fabrics to coordinate...makes it so easy when they do that.
