4 Quilt Tops

I currently have 4!, yes, 4 quilt tops that need to be "sandwiched" and quilted.
#1 -not enough batting for all of them (more is on the way)
#2 - baby quilt - I can't finish this one before finishing big siter's quilt, which I can not do, due to reason #1
#3 - not enough room to quilt the borders on the "couch throw" quilt - 72"
#4 - needs to be quilted with monofilament thread -not my favorite

So, while I wait for the batting, what do I do?
Plan a new quilt, of course!

This one is based on 
Quilts On The Double: Dozens of Easy Strip-Pieced Designs

I love the concept: easy strip pieced, triangle cut quilts. One set of strips creates 2 similar (in color and composition), but not identical quilts.

Perfect for siblings sharing a room.

Fabric groups I'm using are dark grey, charcoals and black; second group is blues. With Kona Coal as an accent color.

About quilt tops and finished quilts

I haven't updated in a while..
My latest completed project was a
Now that she is almost 5 month old I can get back into serious quilting, sewing, knitting.
New baby means new baby quilt of course! Lucky for me it's a girl and I have leftover fabric from Eden "Wavy" quilt.
Here are some pictures of quilt in progress.

It's a simple strip - pieced quilt with white sashing and borders.
