Some things I've been working on, and on and on

I have a lot of works in progress. Sometimes I just like to play around
When I have lots of scraps left from a particular project I start making blocks and they often become a quilt to donate. I made my son a baseball quilt and had lots of leftovers. I still have enough for one more scrappy quilt.
Ufo's ... sigh. This one isn't really my fault. It was for a family member's new baby that up until he was born, they were expecting a girl. That was a big surprise. I put the blocks aside and super quick made another quilt instead. Now they are expecting another and I got these back out. My aim is to put this together and then make a blue one, that way I'll be covered and I'll donate the other one.
Sorry about the pictures, it's another dreary day and I can't get the lighting right. My helpers are following me around today now that school has begun.

Yep, I had that girl quilt all ready then my niece had a boy after being told it was most certainly a girl! Next babe was a girl though. :o)

I just finished cutting eons of green and blue strings. Future donation quilt.

Good jump start on the baby quilt. And a little play is always good.

Lovely fun work and for a good cause too. The pink with ducks are sweet. I hope a little girl gets them this time.
