WIP Wednesday: the one with actual progress!

We've had a ridiculously wet weekend:

Hyde park war memorial

Followed by a ridiculously sunny week:

Hyde park war memorial and reflecting pool

But the native birds have been out:

Rainbow lorikeet
Sulphur crested cockatoos

And I've made progress on my quilting projects!


Classic Baby Quilt

Bound and finished!

Sewing, sewing, sewing...

Blocks done and laid out!

It's very busy - busier than I expected. I tried to pair the more busy fabrics with the less busy, but the resuls are mixed.

USA Hurray!

Started cutting up a quilt for my friend Alli, with whom I play to stay later this year. She's big on patriotism, and her preferred colour/style matches this, so I'm going with scrappy red, blues, and neutrals in Moda Bake Shop's "Charm Crossing quilt pattern:

USA hurray!

I made the blocks a little larger - the raw squares are 6.5", which means the broken dishes should be 5.5" finished.

USA Hurray!

Farm and Chickens Quilt

I found these pieces sitting in a box somewhere...and I can't remember either the fabric set or the pattern for it!

I have this feeling that it's supposed to be nine-patch wonky stars, and then nine-patch neutral blocks. Possibly?

Does someone with a better memory than me recall either the fabric or the pattern?

So what have you been doing this week?
