WIP Wednesday: All the pretties

Welcome back! It's busy, busy, busy around here. In case you didn't catch it yesterday, I finished the Birch Triangle baby quilt! You can see all the pics and info in this post.
After getting the rest of the background fabric I needed, I shifted my focus to finishing up my mini for the IG Cotton + Steel mini quilt swap. A few more inches of binding, and this one will be in the win column. I'm so excited to send this one off to my partner soon!
Finally, last night was filled with a bunch of ironing and cutting for a few small projects I need to finish up: a perfect zip pouch for my C+S swap partner, a new doll quilt from my tutorial, and an open-wide zippered pouch for a friend. It'll be nice to wrap up a few little things.
Finally, I couldn't help but play around with the Rhoda Ruth mini charm pack that the amazingly wonderful ladies from my LQS brought back from Quilt Market for me (knowing my obsession with Elizabeth Hartman). I LURVE these fabrics! (Those colors! Foxes!) As soon as I finish up the little projects, these are being turned into a mini just for me so I can stare at them obsessively until the fabrics come out in September.
