Finished Tops and False Starts

I'm working on one of my ten summer goals -- cutting and sewing fabrics that have been set aside for projects and are taking over the floor of my sewing room! I had a pile of Patty Sloniger's adorable Les Amis fabrics, and I managed to create four tops (various sizes) with only a few scraps leftover! Now I've got to get these on the quilt machine frame before they become a pile of unquilted tops!

I also made a yellow and grey baby quilt out of a pile of leftovers from a previous custom order. This one just needs binding, and I have enough squares left to create a second quilt.

I used some leftover grey minky and some scrap pieces from the yellow and grey quilt to make these burp cloth and onesie sets:

I had a great time sewing together this scrappy top for a customer, made from Hunky Dory fabrics by Chez Moi -- now I'm just waiting for the backing to arrive!

Finally, I laid out these squares I had cut from another set of leftover fabrics, only to discover that I really didn't like the overall look. (I don't think the caf liked it either). After some consideration, I decided that I will edit a few of the prints, and turn it into a chevron top using this pattern. More to come on that later!

Linking Up to Freshly Pieced Work in Progress Wednesday!
