Finish-a-long list for Q3

It is still winter here in Australia so quite a few crochet projects on my Q3 list along with some quilts:)
1. Spectacular Savanna quilt: quilt top has been sent off to the quilters so will just need to do the binding on this one.
2. Wildrose backpack:  Using some cotton in a lovely denim blue for this great pattern by AllaboutAmi
3. Swiss quilt: I am digging into my Bonnie & Camille stash to remake a quilt I made for a gift last year.
4. Heartland crochet blanket: I have used a couple of the balls of yarn but have quite a few to go...
5. Aslan pillow: Another project from the Spectacular Savanna pattern is a lion pillow for my mum's birthday as she is a Leo.
6. Wildrose crochet market bag: All about Ami has another wonderful bag pattern and I am using some pretty Caron Cotton cakes in the Blushing Melon colourway.
7. Madagascar baby quilt: using a few of the animals from the Spectacular Savanna quilt (Alex the lion, Marty the Zebra, Melman the giraffe & Gloria the hippo).
8. Charcoal C2C crochet blanket: another baby blanket this time in a gender neutral deep grey.
9. Tula Pink Hurray for Hexies quilt: most of the hexagons are now sewn together...
10. Dragonfly scarf: using the Dragonfly bandana cowl pattern by Maria Bittner (Pattern Paradise) on Ravelry.

Pearly white baby crochet blanket

Another baby blanket I have had on my hook is a pearly white one which is so soft and snuggly.
Once again I did a simple corner-to-corner (C2C) crochet which worked up well in this yarn.
The texture of this crochet is lovely no matter what side of the blanket you look at.
To finish, I did a simple border of 4 rows of single crochet around the edge.
It is hard to photograph but this yarn has little flecks of colour through it - lemon yellow, peach and pale pink which are so pretty!
This blanket finished at 30"/75 cm square so is a nice size for a newborn or pram/stroller.
This was on my Q2 FAL 2019 list so linking up with the 2019 FAL team here.
