I've been making a lot of quilts lately, but as I don't have very much space, I've been leaving a good few of them unfinished until I move house (and get my very own craft room, woo!) so please excuse the unfinished ones, I just wanted to show you Smiley

 Half Moon Modern charm pack by Moda:

 
 Irish chain quilt (one of the easiest quilts I've ever made!)


Chevron baby quilt (basically just using up scraps for this one)


String block quilt (paper pieced, so much ironing involved!)


My future mother in law loves the above string block quilt, so I decided to make her bag in the same style:


Spots & Stripes baby quilt (handquilted):


Hexagon quilt (made entirely from scraps, all completely sewn by hand, 667 hexagons!)


 Sorry about the overload of photos, I didn't actually realise how many freakin' quilts I've made recently!

Oh wow, these are great! Love the first one, the black sashing makes everything pop! The Irish Chain is beautiful too! And now I want to make a ZigZag quilt! Did that one take a ton of planning to make?

 Thank you! I prefer using black sashing to white, but that's because I'm a naturally messy person and black is easier to clean Cheesy
 the Zig Zag one was actually pretty frustrating to make at times because the seams didn't want to line up properly, so I had to do lots of basting and checking, and then redoing it. But I was using old scraps so it could be different for you. It did take a bit of planning, but you're working with half square triangles so it's not immensely difficult. My advice is to line everything up the way you want before you start sewing, take some photos and keep referring to the pictures, it'll make life a lot easier Smiley
