I got the binding sewn on a little table topper using Fig Tree's "Strawberry Fields".  It wasn't what I started to make but it is what I ended up with.  LOL

I finished my leftover candle mat top.  I made hourglass blocks from my HSTs'.  I will add it to the pile of quilts sitting on my quilter!  I just haven't felt like quilting.

I finished my scrappy blue quilt top last night during the FNSI.  After I sewed the border on, I found another stack of hsts' and could have made it a little bigger.  I figure I can make some candle mats with the leftovers!

Now, I have to figure out how I am going to quilt it.  Stay tuned!

To prove to myself that I am not a complete idiot (I can follow directions!), I made another "Petite Pinwheel" mini quilt.  I stuck with my major color obsession lately and used red, white and blue scraps.  I still have to quilt and bind it but...

Now, I am off to get an iced mocha and finish making myself feel better!

I finished another baby quilt this evening--just had about 12 inches on the binding.  I used Moda's "Hoopla".   and, used a pattern from the MBS by Cindy Lammon called "Building Blocks".

I wanted to show you three minis that I finished today.  The first is a flag, made from scrappy red, white and blue.  I got the pattern from "Stashmaster, Lisa" during the 4th of July Blog Tour!

The second is a mini kit from Temecula Quilt Company.  Betty Lou from Sugarland Quilts made one also.  Hers was cut out correctly.  I cut my windmills on the wrong side of the fabric!  I just noticed that I have another kit exactly the same.  Maybe I can cut it the correct way.

The third mini is made from leftover blocks from my "Strawberry Fields" quilt.

Endless Possibilities

Good afternoon!  I wanted to show you a couple of works in progress before I clean up and head to the kitchen to start supper.  The first is a lap size quilt with Fig Tree's "Strawberry Fields".  I still have to add borders, but the fabric has been ordered.

The second quilt is a scrappy blue and white half triangles.  Here are two blocks.

I also have a few quilts stacked on my quilter.  Maybe I can finish one tomorrow.  LOL

I hope that all of you have enjoyed the holiday!  I played at golf this morning and came home and quilted for a bit.  Here are three of my latest finishes (two baby quilts and a table topper).

"Baby Bricks" by Tracy Kincheloe

Moda Bakeshop Pattern by Jamie Mueller
I ran out of Jelly Roll strips, so I used Honey Bun strips ("Oh, Cherry, Oh")

"Fat Man Squeeze" from Kathy Brown's Book "Strip Smart Quilts"
I must tell you that my seam ripper got plenty of use--I couldn't get block arrangement quite right!  I used Minick and Simpson's "Clermont Farms"

Happy 4th of July!

I am off to the golf course with an early tee time.  I should be home and sewing by noon.  I have had a great vacation and it is back to work tomorrow.  Enjoy the day!
