Commitment Phobic

My quilt productivity has completely stopped because for some reason I can not commit to what fabrics I want to use for the borders and back sides.
I originally wanted to make a quilt because I had this fabric that was very special to me.
Two years ago for my birthday Zachary insisted on buying me fabric for my gift. He knew that I loved to sew and he thought that would be the best gift ever. He was right. So Frank took him to the fabric store and let him pick out 2 pieces of fabric for me. He was so proud of himself and I was so proud of have amazingly thoughtful he was.
For months I thought and thought about how to use these fabrics. I knew I wanted to keep them but I knew that Zachary would want them to be used. I finally decided to make a quilt, a very special Zachary quilt. 
Now I am almost done sewing the blocks together I think I have like three left to do and now I  am left trying to figure out what to do with the boarder and the back side. I am going use what I have left of these two fabrics I just want to find  something that will tie them together better.
This is what I have in my shopping cart at
I am leaning towards the first one but I think I may just have to get them both and see which one looks better
in real life.
But there is still more trouble! As I mentioned in this post one quilt has turned into two.
And this one is giving me trouble. I think I want to make the main boarder and background colors yellow and brown but I can only find fabrics I like in yellow. Here is what I have picked out
I am thinking I can just fill it in with brown scraps that I have already but like I said I am unable to make a commitment.

Some Productivity

I finally finished this little stack of wallets this weekend. They should be making their way into my esty shop over the next couple of days.

Vintage Expo 2010

Yesterday I tricked Frank and Miles into going out with me and our friend Caitlin to the vintage expo in San Francisco. Frank quickly retreated to a quite table and did some reading while Miles and I did some shopping with Caitlin. I mainly like to go to admire all the pretty things but this year even with a baby tied to my back I managed to find a few goodies.
I picked up some fabric
Isn't it cute?

and some buttons

Some pretty necklaces

And this tank top!

Is is even possible to no to a tank top with little pink bears on it? No, I don't think so.
I also picked up a pair of vintage glasses which are off getting some lenses put in them. I didn't think to take pictures of them but I will try to remember to share some when I get them in a couple weeks.
