New Quilt

I just started a new ultra secret quilt yesterday. I have had this quilt in mind for a while, I just couldn't decide how I was going to do it. I knew I wanted to make a picture quilt with bandana fabric. I recently purchased an accuquilt go and found the tumbler die, I fell in love  :)   I purchased printable fabric by June Taylor and I like it so far. I printed 23 pictures and cut them out with my tumbler die and also cut out my bandana fabric on the tumbler die. I have pieced all 13 rows now I just need to sew the rows together. I am really moving along on this one  :) I will post pictures when I am done and it gets to its new owner, who has no idea that she is even getting a quilt  :)

Butterfly quilt for my daughter - Need backing and quilting but I am not sure how to quilt it.
Rag quilt for my niece - I have only cut the fabric
Deer quilt for my husband - Needs borders, backing and quilting
Tumbler picture quilt for .... :) - Need to piece rows together and quilt
T-shirt quilt which will likely never get done because it is HUGE!! and I am scared to try to quilt it on my machine.

I decided to do a block of the month project from stitch in heaven called "Blessings of Spring" which starts this month on the 20th!! So excited.

Quilt ideas on the brain -

Just purchased a new layer cake - Going to try the "double slice" I saw on Missouri star quilt co - Really cute and easy to sew with no waste.

Just purchased a jelly roll of Christmas (I know it's March) I am going to make "string" quilted Christmas stockings!

I have alot of projects or ideas right now. It seems like so many more now that it is on paper.

Snai trail / Butterfly Quilt

This is my first attempt at a snail trail, it turned out pretty cute.

The pink in the first pic and the purple in the second pic are more like the true colors.

I used my accuquilt to cut out all the pieces.

Here is my pieced butterfly quilt. I just need to add the two borders and the quilt away! Going to work on that tomorrow!!
