Elm Street Quilts OMG Link-up: And Then There Were Two

Awhile back I made a quilt for a possible little girl joining our family.  After 3 times being in the top tier for a little girl, my son and daughter-in-law were selected as adoptive parents and are picking up a little boy next weekend.  My Elm Street Quilts OMG for February was to complete the quilt top.  The top is done as I first planned but it just seemed unfinished and now is waiting for more fabric to arrive to complete a second outer border.
Friday, I received an invitation for baby shower, now quilt top number two from the scraps is done and fabrics for the back and binding have been pulled from my stash. 
Other finishes for February include coordinating fat quarters aprons for my little sis and I to wear at our family's Easter Sunday dinner.

And a little notion holder for my sewing table known as a Button Boat by Lazy Girl Patterns.  I like to line my Clover Wonder Clips along the edge.  They are easy to grab and pinch open.

Elm Street Quilt February OMG: Another Baby Quilt

I had hopes of using EQ7 to give you all an idea of the sew and slice quilt I want to make for my next baby quilt.  Unfortunately, the program is not behaving.  Laying fabric on the living room floor is easier and viewing the results in photos has made the process of determining the fabrics and the order painless.  Why did I spend hours with EQ?
Sew and Slice Baby Quilt for February Elm Street Quilts OMG
The inspiration for this quilt was from one I saw on Pinterest:  Sew and Slice Quilt.  Since I don't have enough fabric for the inserted section, there will be a Dr. Seuss block added to expand it.  There will be sashing to frame like the sample.  My goal is to get this top done this month around a trip to see the grands this month.
