WiP/FMC - Spring Cleaning Fever

How come Spring Fever only manifests itself as entirely new projects? I really need to clean/organize the garage and the office...yet I'm Googling how to paint tile in the kid bathroom. I planted grass seed, but watching grass grow isn't as exciting as my neighbor's new sprinkler system.
But, as we'll be lucky to sell for what we paid, there will be no upgrades. Maybe I should glue fabric squares on the bathroom tiles for now.

This week, I cut the background for Hotel Kit #3 (KateBob) and the first border. That kit's done now, as the second border will be determined on the fly.
I also finished cutting the focal fabrics for Hotel Kit #4 (mason jar picnic quilt). I made two test blocks and can't decide which I prefer - 1.5" or 2.5" corners. Opinions?

Non-QA Quilts: 
 Airplane Dreams - done!

Fat Quarter Stars - 6/12 blocks - none
LQS Saturday Sampler 2012 - 6/36 - new blocks to make
 LQS Saturday Sampler 2011 - medallion rows done - time to sew the rows together!
Granny Squares {mine} - 12/16 done. I realized I'm going to run out of the blue solid with 2 blocks to go. Sigh. It'll give me time to get the corners on and start sashing everything before I can get to the city on Sunday.

  1. definitely the jar on the left :) Love the baby girl quilt!

  2. i agree with karin. in regards to the block choice as well as that oh-so-lovely baby girl quilt~!!~


  3. Yes, I agree, go with the larger lid!
    Love your pink and lilac number in the middle too!

  4. I like the larger lid too. You've stayed busy. Lots of progress this week even though you didn't work on all of your projects.

  5. I like the jar on the right, it seems more defined as a jar?...I am assuming (HA!) that the lid will be larger?

  6. i like the one on the Swoon? snif. But love your granny square blocks!

  7. I love that sampler block. Was it as hard to make as it looks?

    I have been surfing for ways to paint floor tile. It looks like a pain, but I want to try it. I'll be watching for your painted tile too.
