Progress report

I feel just about fully recovered from VBS week here, and as a result I've been working on a few things. First of all, a few more blocks for the Summer Sampler Series:

Garden Path block

The Garden Path block.

Arkansas Traveler block

The Arkansas Traveler.

Star block

The Star block. Very creative name I thought. Ha ha.

I've also made a bit of progress quilting my doll quilt for the DQS.

Hmmm. Let's see. Zig zags. Bright colors on a neutral background. Colorful hand quilting. Ring any bells? It's so funny because I originally was going to go with some horridly complex and nerve-wracking blocks, but decided that sometimes simple is just as good. And I LOVE the way this is coming out, it's just funny (and totally unintentional) how much it looks like last round's quilt. Although that one was a way bigger pain in the butt as far as piecing went. This one came together like a dream. 

Anyway, I hope this is cool with my partner because two hours of handquilting later has me feeling very invested in this sucker.

Jeanne has already said exactly what I wanted to say. I'm not so much of a quilter myself, but this one I love.

This the cutesy zig-zag quilt I have ever seen! Love it!

Oops! I meant "cutest"--sometimes I hate predictive text!

Is the bottom picture your own pattern? Or is there a place to get the pattern online?
Thanks in advance
