2 Quilt tops finished and a new one started

Here are two of the quilt tops I have just finished one is a king for my bed, lots of colour the other one is for a chest I have in my dinning room. Then they are off to the quilter, also I have put pictures of the first few flower blocks from my grandma quilt. I have a basket I am keeping my fabric in and as I finish a hexagon I throw in back in the basket , I was getting some help today from Daisy (my 18yr old cat) she was keeping the hexagons in order or did she think the quilt was finished and she was testing it out.
