Works in Progress

Thanks for your sweet comments about the Citrus Quilt.  They lit a fire under me and encouraged me to work on getting it  finished.  I've attached the scrappy border and the only thing left to do on the quilt top is attach the white border.  I haven't taken any pics of it with the scrappy border but it really brings the design and colors together.  At the pace I'm going though I should be done with this quilt by the summer.  :-)

As you can see from the pics above, I'm also working on a half square triangle quilt using my scraps.  Some of the fabrics are novelty and some are just from past sewing projects.  This quilt is going to be a long term WIP.  I enjoy snatching a few minutes in between "mommy work" and piecing the units a little at a time.  Some of the fabric is not my favorite but I can't in good conscience waste fabric so I'm hoping when the quilt comes together it won't matter and they will all just blend in.

Still in progress
1.  I-spy for B--I got some great novelty squares from the ELQ charm swap and all that's left to do is piece this top

2.  Baby gift -haven't started yet, just have fabric picked out

This is a picture of my next door neighbor's daffodils.  I'm so excited that spring is finally here!

I'm sharing this over at Freshly Pieced.  What good things are you working on?
