WIP Wednesday {3.2.2011}

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced

Time for another WIP Wednesday! 

New Projects

Central Park Baby Quilt
I have finally cut into my Central Park fat quarter bundle.  These fabrics have just been screaming to be made into a baby quilt...we have two couple friends who are expecting, neither of them know what they are having, so I'm taking a chance that one of the two of them will have a girl! 

I started with this stack...

And then had these yummy scraps and squares...
Which turned into this pretty pretty layout on my design wall!  I need to cut the white squares and then get busy sewing this little quilt top together.

Ongoing Projects

Scrap Bin Quilt (I really must think of a new name...)
I posted about this in my weekend sewing post, but I have been wanting to really dig into my scrap bins and make a quilt solely out of fabric scraps from other projects. 

scrappy blocks

This is what I have so far, using up a good bit of my green and blue fabric scraps.  As a side bonus in cutting into my Central Park fabric, I even have a few scraps of oranges and pinks that I was lacking to add to those blocks! 

DQS 10
Unfortunately I don't have any further progress to share on my Hope Valley Quilt for DQS 10...BUT a little birdie told me (ok, not a little birdie but the UPS tracking system) that my pearl cotton thread I ordered to do the hand quilting should be awaiting me at my doorstep when I get home!  If this is true, this project will jump to the number one spot, as I'm uber anxious to get quilting and see the finished result!
