Working on WIPs and making a list

I am working on two baby quilt WIPs.  Making good progress as I haven't had a lot of time for sewing this week. Visitors with two young children so we had to move a lot around in the house, get out the travel cot and folding bed etc. Now I am tackling the washing!

So, here are the quilts:

The one on the left is the Noah's Ark quilt, all trimmed and ready for the binding ( which is already made too)
The quilt on the right, with its bubble gum pink sashing is being hand quilted with Perle thread.
Here's one of the blocks I have quilted:

Noah's Ark is for a baby boy, expected any day now and A Star is Born is for a baby due in a month's time ( if it's a girl!).
I have been thinking of Craft Projects that need to be done:
1.  Finish both Baby Quilt WIPs
2.  Finish making the blocks for my String Quilt ( which means cutting a load more strings first)
3.  Make some QAYG String blocks I have promised for Jan (Sew Many Quilts Too Little Time)
4.  Make 2 Spider web Blocks for a Group Quilt
5.  Make a little drawstring bag for my Christmas Shoe Box appeal gift
6.  Knit a beanie and a little shoulder bag for the Christmas Shoe Box.
Hope to tick off the Noah's Ark quilt asap!
Off to do some more Perle hand quilting.  Leaving re-jigging the house until tomorrow!


  1. Your two quilts are really fun. I like that they're so bright and happy, the perfect way to celebrate the arrival of little ones. Good luck working through your list.

  2. They are great ideas for the Xmas shoe boxes. I haven't done them before but where I sew on a Monday they have started to cover them. Maybe I should start thinking of ideas then start making something too... Thanks for the push.
