fabrics..take 1

I mentioned earlier this week that I was starting on my very first quilt for Colton.  I am doing the Ragged Squares Quilt with these fabrics.  I spent about 2 hours at Joann Fabrics picking out thread, batting, fabric, cutting mat, etc. I started cutting the fabrics last week, and I have about 80 squares to go!  I really hope these fabrics turn out looking OK together in the quilt.  Not sure what I am going to do with the back yet, but I picked up some tan Kona to use. 

The below fabrics were actually my first ever fabric purchase..I bought this before I even had my sewing machine!  Here are fat quarters of Amy Butler's entire LOVE collection.  I have no idea what kind of quilt I want to make with this, but I have a while to make up my mind.
