Design Wall on my birthday :)

This is on my design wall. The beginnings of a baby quilt in the cheating half hexagon pattern. THIS style I might even finish :)

Since I have all my brights out for making the Picnic Quilt blocks for a swap, I decided to try this out with the juvenile brights and some others that jumped under the rotary cutter. It is kind of fun, and out of my ordinary choice for blocks.

I am thinking of making one of these for me out of a Jelly Roll that I picked up in Paducah...but wanted to try it out from my stash first :) Two nephews are anxiously awaiting the birth of children, so this can go to one of them. The other will most likely get the quilt that I started a while back from swap blocks. 

I'll just have to finish piecing this one and load them up on my frame :)

And yes, it is my birthday today...hoping it doesn't rain!

I have always wanted to try this method - I look forward to seeing the finished top.

Ha; cheater hexagon pattern! It seems like a lot of quilters are doing hexagons right about now...
