What is keeping me busy

I know it's not a great photo but it was the best I could do. It's quite a close up, the tape measure is marked in inches. This is a section of the big quilt I am working on and I have 8 sections each about 12" square that I need to fill in with this. The pattern is great for adding the amount of colour I want but it really isn't quick. I am getting faster though and I've just completed the second area. My current plan is to get 4 of the sections completed then unload the quilt and do some customer work. I've got a couple of quilts that are needed for early September. I think I might then look at quilting the art quilt. Anything to let me make bigger movements with the machine to be honest. At least I am about half way with the background fillers so hopefully the next time this quilt makes it to the frame I will finish it.

I suspect I can guess, but they work so well :) The worst bit is I knew exactly what I was getting myself into having made the test piece, and I still went ahead with it ;)
