WIP Wednesday

My various piecing projects are inching along this week.  This is block #62 in the Farmer's Wife Quilt: Old Windmill.  The pink print is from my daughter's quilt, soon to be revealed, and the others are scraps from all over.  Lots of HSTs on this one.
And block #63: Ozark Maple Leaf.  I would never ordinarily have put these two fabrics together: oak leaf print leftover from my Tree of Life quilt and vintage sweet pea fabric from an old nightgown.
I now have a total of 107 blocks for the Crumb Along quilt.  I can't remember exactly how many I need, but I'll start laying it out when I have 25 more.  That could be as early as next week at this rate!

This week I started and finished machine-quilting my daughter's quilt.  She sewed down the binding yesterday and today, and tomorrow maybe we'll get the label on and take some pictures.  Now I need to decide what's next onto the Megaquilter... I have a couple to choose from!

On the knitting front I've started a new pair of socks and a baby item.  No pictures yet.

Linking up to Freshly Pieced, where you'll find lots of other quilty progress to look at.

Are you still enjoying the FW blocks? I don't know about all those little pieces- too hard for me!

I so badly wanted to jump into the crumb quilt along. My scraps are overtaking my life and it's such a fun quilt. I just have too much going on right now. Your blocks are looking really good! It's making me wish I had started it!

Scrap-tastic crumb blocks. What a great way to use up all those scraps.

You have the same blog background as I do. You sure have some neat looking squares going on there.

Your crumb along looks like a lot of fun! I have an overflowing scrap bin and may need to give this a go!

Twice now I've seen 'crumb' quilt a totally new term to me. Looks neat, though
