WIP Wed - All Aboard!

First up today is a bit of work on my boat blocks. I decided to try to make up several quilts with my red, white and blue/aqua scraps. Here is the first one. I went with 6 1/2" blocks which is what I had a lot of. Win win! The boat doesn't really stand out too much but I think some little one will love it anyway.  Now to get it sandwiched and practice fmqing!!

I was feeling so behind with the county fair here all last week.  I volunteered several times and tried to work on more charity quilts while there if I was not white gloving the quilts.

Here is my little piece that I am proud to say earned a blue ribbon!

Here is one of the kits I made up last week for Quilts for Kids (they had a booth at the fair that I worked at a bit during the fair).  This kit I decided to do myself because it had a block that needed piecing and I was trying to use up pieces for the back too.  Lots of stash fabric!

It turned out kind of cute. :)

Between shifts at the fair I tried to be outside and in my vegetable garden.  Two days in a row I tried to capture these Hummingbird moths.  They are fast little guys!!

See what I mean? fast

So that is my slow progress for the week so far. I am linking up with
