One finished and one started

Damn, it's been a month since I posted! How'd that happen? I'll have to blame this lovely weather but really I'm just lazy. I wanted to show you how the City Green revisted quilt turned out. I still seem to be having issues cutting the blocks all the same size but this one is much better than the first. In the end, I still did the rows offset because although most of them lined up, they didn't all.

Here's the final product. I'm happy with it but it's a bit too small for use as a sleeping quilt so the damn cats have claimed it for now. I think it'll be fine for a couch quilt in the winter. I'm thinking that I would like to buy a fabric cutter such as the Go!baby sometime soon so that I can avoid my current issues of terrible cutting.

Here's a look at how the quilting is done. Kind of an echo just inside the sashing. It makes it look like the sashing is actually over the squares which I like.
Now for a sneak of my next quilt. This one is going to take awhile but I'm very excited about it. It's a pixel quilt!! YAY! The content is kind of a secret but I can assure you that it's going to be awesome. I have already cut about a million squares and have a million more to go.

Two of my ten colors. The squares are 1.5"x1.5" which means they'll be 1" square when sewn.

This is a trial to see how the process would go. I found a tutorial by Oh! Fransson (link to left) that should make it easier. I'm thinking that it will also make my cutting issues less noticeable.
 That's all for now. I will try to document the process while I'm going.
