Sewing at Last

I've finally got a little sewing inspiration (and a bit of time) back!

I bought this bright picnic quilt kit on sale at Fat Quarter Shop and spent this morning doing the piecing:

Excuse the poor photos today. It was overcast and drizzly this morning so it was hard to get some natural light. Also the puppies kept walking all over this and rumpling it as I was trying to photograph it, hence the wrinkles!

I still need to applique some flowers onto it in bright orange, so it looks like this:

And I also put together some pretty charm squares with some white sashing for a quick baby quilt:

These fabrics are just so lovely. I'll take another photo in better light to show them up better, when I've finished quilting it.
