WIP Wednesday & some finished projects

I made this little reversable pinafore for Elizabeth a few weeks ago but didn't get a photo until recently, this is her bee dress, connor loves the little bees on the white material and makes a buzzing sound everytime she wears it. (and isn't she such a poser)
This is the pirate costume I am making for Connor to wear to a dress up birthday party this weekend, the plain tshirt and pants were bought from Big W and the hat and sword (not pictured) from the warehouse, I picked up the stripey material and the black material for the sash from the bargain bins at SL and had the vest pattern already in my stash from an op shop visit. I still have to make him an eye patch from felt that I got this morning but other than that I think its done, cant wait to see him dressed up in it.
And finally, the quilt I am working on for the birthday girl, I got the pattern from the February issue of Better Homes & Gardens, it is my first ever quilt (appart from the raggedy edge quilt I made for Elizabeths quilt last year in the sew along) and has been pretty straight forward up to this point, I have been getting some tips from the lovely ladies on the sewing thread at EB on sandwiching etc and now am up to the part where I have to mark it up for the actual quilting. I am hoping to have it finished by Sunday for the party but I guess that depends on how my machine quilting goes LOL.

Sorry for the dark photos but I can only lay it out at night after the kids have gone to bed or they start walking and crawling all over it.

i saw that quilt in better homes and gardens too and thought it looked like a quick simple design. I am planing on "whipping" one up as soon as i find a spare afternoon.
