I had a goal of Oct. 1 to finish my table topper so I could use it this fall but didn't quite make it. I finally finished up last night after a couple of marathon hand quilting sessions and a sit down and do it binding session. Very pleased with the result.

I rarely make something "just for me" but this one definitely is. It did seem like a lot of work to just use a few months out of the year but I think we will enjoy it enough to make it worth the effort.

Now, want to adapt the pattern with a Christmas theme..........maybe in blues with a snowman applique or red and white with candy canes? Whatever, that one will NOT be hand quilted.

I am amazed at what some bloggers accomplish. I will see a pic of uncut fabric on a blog and then a few days later a finished top or a complete quilt. I do not have the "stick with it" patience to do that I guess. Got to work on that

Oh Norma, it's just wonderful. It looks so fall-ish! Yeah, I have visions of snowman stitcheries swirling around in my head, wanna do one together?

The weather at Picacho was marvelous, camping was terrific. We'll be going back there for sure. Could I pursuade you in bringing out the motorhome and meeting there sometime?

Your finished quilt is so wonderful. I have puzzled about how some people finish quilts so quickly. I think it is not just the hours but also has something to do with how much (or little) playing and enjoying the processis done.

I am almost a month late on this, but I am so in love with this little quilt. I'm glad you shared pictures of it in progress and can't wait to see the other ones you make!! Beautiful.
