WIP Wednesday #31

Um, how it is Wednesday again already? (In case you're new around here, I'm following along with Freshly Pieced's W.I.P. (Work In Progress) Wednesday series as a good way for me (and you) to keep track of what's going on around here.)

In progress:
Les Amis quilt
I stitched up all of the blocks for the quilt top this week!
I'm using this Lattice Quilt pattern from Mommy by Day Crafter by Night, but I needed to downsize it quite a bit for my project (I'm making a baby quilt).
So, I eyeballed about how many blocks I thought I needed, but after cutting and stitching them all, I realized I definitely had too many.
No worries. I'm sure the extras will find their way into the backing. 
I think I've decided on this layout, so now I just need to get them all sewn together. What do you think? 

On the "to do" list:
Early Bird/Kitchen Window quilt 
New pillows for the downstairs bed and two chairs
Table runner
iPod workout strap
New quilt for the living room (thinking of doing a sliced coins quilt)
A mug rug for me
T-shirt quilt
Winter hat for B
Picnic quilt
Ironing board cover 
Re-cover downstairs chair
