New quilt-along

I found a fun quilt-along over at Happy Quilting and have been pulled in.  At least partway.  I decided on colors:
and made two blocks today:
The plan is for it to be a twin-sized quilt, suitable for a girl's quilt for the Cedar Tree auction.  I have a half-baked idea of doing multiple quilts for next year's auction.  We'll see.  If nothing else, I can dig into my stash of bright oranges, pinks and yellows.  Mostly oranges and pinks though.

The boys have been working on trim today. 
Primigenitus generally follows ladder safety rules and paints within the lines.  And he smiles for the camera.
Secundus has to spray things down after he tries to reposition the ladder with the paint bucket still hanging from it...
...and he avoids the camera.  There are a lot of loose ends still, but most of the painting is done.
