More Lanterns (and a ditty)

I had two more Asian fabrics for my quilt.  So I made these two blocks.  They are not yet squared up, but you can see how lovely the fabrics are. I am waiting for my other Asian fabrics that I am getting from Judy at Sew Fun Quilts   She has a great Etsy store with both items she makes AND precut fabrics.  She currently is selling one quilt kit that is darling if you applique.

So here are my blocks in all their glory.  I think this quilt will be AWESOME.  I am just trying to decide how it will be quilted.

Trust me, you haven't seen the last of this quilt! 

and here is the ditty! Yes me on penny whistle again.  Told you I am Irish to the core.

I loved hearing your little ditty this a.m....and I enjoy seeing you smiling at the end, too! Your lantern quilt blocks are coming along nicely. Are you going to make this a large-sized quilt?

Your lantern block are beautiful. I enjoyed your ditty. When we were kids in elementary school, we spent a year learning to play a penny whistle. It was great fun, however we didn't get as good as you!

I love these blocks and the Asian fabrics you are using in them. Can't wait to see the whole finished project. And what's to say about your latest pennywhistle treat? It's the most unique blog post anywhere, I'm sure!
