Last weekends work in progress

My husband accuses of quilting being "never ending" for me....  and from reading my posts lately it does look that way, but honestly it is not all I do.... LOL  and while you have a family of boys who like watching Top Gear and playing X Box, you do have to have a hobby !!!  otherwise in the winter and the weather is bad, it would be very easy to get bored....  So I think it was last weekend that I managed to finish up the second strip pieced quilt with the Aqua solid.

It won't get quilted for ages though.... as I want to custom quilt those solid areas... and maybe add some borders too.  So here it hangs - waiting ...

From the leftover pieces, I cut them up into a bundle of half square triangles and made two smaller pieces - now I could make them both a bit bigger and make more half square triangles, or I could make maybe a cushion or two, maybe even a bag...  who knows... but for the moment, they are just stuck up on the wall.....  waiting for inspiration to strike.  Each leftover end piece yields 3 2.75 inch and 3 1.75 inch triangles....  I have yet to sew the tiny squares together yet though, so may not be too successful yet...
