Weekly Progress - Still on Vacation

I need a vacation from my vacation from my vacation! 
Last week was great, until I shared a water bottle with my two year old niece. You know, one of those germy creatures? Everyone but the Dude ended up with a nasty cold. I'm still recovering, but the vacation continues with DC this week!
We went to a botanical garden outside Charlotte - gorgeous! I have picture after picture of color inspiration.
The kids, of course, were most fascinated by a frog.
  Still Big Blue's binding, but I'm on the last side! Which is good, because it needs to be done by Saturday... 

In-Progress:

Central Park Sudoku - okay, it still looks the same, but there's only one seam left on the inner sashing. Then outer, then border shopping!
 
Not mine, but I cut my sister's "Walk in the Woods" fat quarters for a Yellow Brick Road. So I think I should get credit for it. I was kind of hoping for more scraps, but this darn pattern is very efficient in cutting. Maybe there will be some scraps in the sewing process...
Quilted Enough So That I Could Baste Another Quilt:

Bad Romance & Fall-gyle - yup, that's seriously a category now. Lines go in one direction. Will finish when I get back home. Need more pins... 

Basted:

Layer Cake Quilt Along - man, some of these quilts have been backlogged for a while! This is going to take longer to quilt - I will probably just anchor it with stitch-in-the-ditch on the sashing for now. I want to do each block differently, and that will take some planning.

Swapping:

Picture-Perfect Polaroid Block Swap - a little cutesy, but I'm enjoying my Peter Rabbit fussy-cutting.
Joining:
Vintage Holiday Quilt Along - I decided to bust into my Fairy Frost collection for this. Sparkly Christmas ornaments! Even though I really don't need another Christmas quilt.
