finish #3 and a new start (or 2)

Another carry over UFO from 2013 was completed this weekend and I have to say it may be my new favorite. 
A while back I bought a layer cake of Willow by Riley Blake because I thought it was so beautiful and soft. A short while later my friend Lee came out with her pattern Lazy Sunday and I knew that this would come together nicely once I added in a few other fabrics to make up for the small layer cake(28 fabrics instead of 42).
I love how the quilting turned out on this one and am almost more in love with the back of the quilt than the front. It's just so squishy looking -- and it hasn't even been washed yet.
Thus Lazy Willow was created.
Fabric used 9.5 yards

Since I am finishing up all these UFO's I decided it was time to start another project but this time I wanted to use up some of my pre-cut scraps, so as I was pulling out charms for my doll quilt partner I pulled out some lovelies for my next project as well.
I put them into a simple scrappy top that would be perfect for a baby girl. I may add a grey boarder to the top but haven't decided yet. I'm already looking forward to quilting it because I'm going to try out echo quilting of the star for a change of pace.  
I will also be starting another project on Sunday this week when my friend Teri will be teaching her first class as Sew Original for the lovely Scout Quilt. (the class has been delayed -- hopefully that means more people can join in when it does start.)
Happy Quilting everyone
