A bit of homework for camp and a fun baby quilt

I have been dying to do a baby quilt ever since I found out my niece was pregnant.  I've also been dying for a little bit of creative outlet since I haven't had much of that in my life as of late.  Finally, Saturday I just took the time and did it.  After weeks of looking for just the right fabric and just not finding something that grabbed me, I found something that although not baby per se works well for
a child.  It was something totally not what I was looking for (other than the bright colors), but I liked it and was anxious to start.  So Saturday, I put this little quilt top together.  I still need to find backing fabric that I like, get it quilted and bound, but this little project is well on its way to being done in time for a May birth.
I've also been spending some time working on the homework project for stitching camp.  I really need to complete it prior to camp since the finishing class I'm taking requires it.  The pattern doesn't really grab me which may be why I'm not thrilled so much with working on it. Here's what I have done thus far.  Sorry about the fuzzy picture!  I'm making good progress but need to get it done by March 20.  

Take care,

The quilt is so bright and cheerful, she'll love it. Like your camp piece too. I've gotten a bit more work on mine done, but think it will end up being pretty close to camp when actually get it finished. Oh well, guess is the same if I finish month early or a day early, as long is it gets done right, LOL. Stay warm, this winter has been the pits.
