Finished quilts, new Pyrex, and the start of a new quilt

I've been busy! I finally finished the quilt I started back in March. I didn't think it'd take that long to do, but it took me 10 hours to piece the blocks (tutorial found here) and I don't know how long to finish up the rest of it. I really liked how this one turned out. I ended up sending it as a surprise to one of my running friends who was going to be in the hospital for hip surgery. She was so surprised and ended up taking it with her to the hospital. :) I love when my quilts are loved! 

This quilt I made pretty quickly (about 2-3 weeks off and on) for one of my friends that I've known since 2nd grade. She picked out the design (found here) and sent me the fabric. I hope her little boys have fun with it. My niece thought it was fun to scoot around while I took pictures. :)

I found these two little fridgies the other day while at Savers. I love that I'm finding more Snowflake to add to my collection. I can't wait to have them all out during Christmas/winter.

This is my most current quilt project. My hubby keeps telling me that I keep making quilts for my friends and I haven't made one for him, so I'm making this Swoon quilt for him. Each block is about 24" squared. I'm hoping to have it be king size so he can use it on the bed. He loves fall colors so there are lots of oranges, yellows, reds, and browns in this quilt. I think it'll end up looking pretty cool when it's done. The only down side of this quilt is each block takes me about 2-3 hours to do including the cutting! I may have to make a couple baby quilts in between blocks so, I don't get burned out.
