WIP's quilting, knitting, and sketching

What am I working on?  Ah, I always have lots of stuff going on, don't I?
Time to share.

Firstly, Blue quilt is still in progress, but I now have 6 of 20 squares FMQed.
In the quilting world, I've finished the quilt top for this NYC Mod Quilters Challenge.

The challenge is to do a double wedding ring and I'll be entering this li'l beauty once it's quilted and bound...

I'm really excited about it!
In the knitting design world, I'm currently testing this lovely camisole.

And finally, I wanted to share with you all some of the rough drawings I did for a recent open call to submit illustrations.  Before I settled down and entered in my own pen and ink style, I experimented with some digital illustration.  Sometimes when I go digital I get all crazy and can't work my way out.  With these tests, I loved the palette and the main horse, but I couldn't find a way to adhere to all the guidelines which were really focusing on the "playground" theme in general.  Limiting it to the spring horse left me a bit wanting.  Love the form, but couldn't get past the limitations I had placed on myself.  Ah well, I seem to work best in graphite first, then digitally.  Here are some of my digital experiments...

I love the fabric in the quilt, and the colour combination in your ponies design. Those dark corals and teals are so scrummy together! I hope you figure out something you are happy with.
