Yet Another Quilt-a-Long

I couldn't resist.  Even though I have decided to keep working on finishing up some projects, I decided to join AmandaJean at Crazy Mom Quilts proposed a 9 patch quilt-a-long.  She proposed making one 9-patch a day and then in 70 short days we'll have enough to make a quilt top.  Sounds good to me.  AND I really like the quilt she posted a picture of. 
I opted for 2 fabrics per block and to use scraps and fabrics from my stash.  I also like this project because it gives me a chance to use some of the obscure fabrics in my stash that I wouldn't normally use very often.  My hope is to have no two blocks be the same.  Also that I would not use one fabric more than twice.  We'll see how that one goes, though.

I  have been working on making some blocks.  I may have started to get a bit ahead of myself.  I find it to be quite addicting, to be honest.  They're so simple to make and it goes quickly.  I'm pretty results driven, so it's nearly instant gratification!  Perfect!  I figure at some point I will surely become bored with this project and move onto something else so it is better that I'm getting ahead now.

Here are my first 11.  I actually have a few more in progress.  I figured if I decided to wait until a good stopping point I might not ever post anything. 

Yes, I realize that the white piece of fabric covering over part of my background looks tacky.  That was the piece I pulled out and didn't feel like searching from the pile for something bigger.  Laziness.  Sheer laziness.
