First Quilt Blocks!!

I have officially finished my first two quilt blocks. Let me tell ya, I am so excited!! I cannot wait to keep making more. The anticipation of what the final product will be is just awesome. I feel like a kid in a candy store ;0) I am using Urban Chicks1974 line fabric. A jelly roll, and charm pack. I absolutely LOVE this fabric!! I'm addicted to making these blocks, and have already paired all the pieces of each one. So they are ready to sew...Hopefully tonight will be an early bedtime for the kiddies. That way I can get sewing. Aren't they cute?!

I am supposed to be working on the 25 wallets for my step mother. But I am more interested in working on my first quilt...ADD, I know. I have cut, sewn, and turned all 25 wallet pieces. I have to press, add loop, split ring, fold, and stitch them. Then lastly I will add a cute little snap and they will be done. I'm really in no rush, as I was told not to be in one. You only have to tell me once..HA! I'll get them done before the weekend is over I'm sure. Here's what I have thus far...

This is a picture of what the finished wallet should look like. But with cute ice skater fabrics.
I purchased the PDF Pattern off of Etsy. I love PDF patterns because you get them way quicker than paper form. For those of us who have no patience what so ever.....HERE is the link.

By the way, I know my camera really stinks. But it's what I got. I guess it could be worse, and I could be camera-less...*Gasp* I know, I know who would ever want to think such a thing!
