more quilt as you go blocks

I could not quite string them all up but I now have 9 blocks completed. I first saw the quilt as you go blocks here.
Here is a sampling plus Skipper the Dog.
Aren't they pretty?! I placed a reinforcement order at Whimsy Dots on etsy (ETA: TODAY HER FABRIC IS 25% OFF!) to get a bit more variety in my sheet selection AND because I am going b i g g e r. I quickly moved beyond pillow (unless I make 9!) and decided against a baby quilt b/c I really don't want to give this away and have instead set my sights on a picnic blanket. I have a large thrifted sheet already for the backing.
Here are some close up shots of some of my squares. It is beyond hot and humid outside but also overcast, making it prime picture taking time.

So, I have a renewed desire to find more thrifted sheets but I don't find them often around here (SW OH). Any thoughts or suggestions?!

I shared this at Today's Creative Blog. Lots of great ideas over there.
