WIP Wednesday #55

Howdy, Wednesday. Things were busy at the end of last week, so I'm easing back into the sewing this week.

Last week's craziness was all about finishing the Bluebird Park Baby Quilt, which I did!
The quilt was for two friends for whom we threw a baby shower on Saturday, so it was nice to be able to finish the quilt and pass it on so quickly. I'm hoping their new little guy will love all of the fun colors and prints in the quilt. You can read all about this quilt details in this post.

In progress:
After the shower was over, I got right to work on my MQG Riley Blake Challenge quilt. I'd already pulled all of the fabrics for it, deciding to focus on gray, navy, and orange.
I decided on one of the patterns in Modern Patchwork (so  many great ones it was hard to choose!) and got to work cutting everything up. I'm getting pretty excited about seeing this one come together. Now, back to the cutting mat!

On the "to do" list:
Five more pillows for the STLMQG Pillow Bomb Project
Get back to the T-shirt quilt and Kitchen Window quilt
New tie for B (with a tutorial, finally!)
Superhero cape for B
Re-covering the downstairs chair
New pillows for the downstairs chairs
A mug rug for me
Ironing board cover
Another divided basket from the Noodlehead pattern 
Reusable snack bags
Living room quilt
Washi dress

This week, I'm linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced!
