I finished another quilt top today.  I used Moda's "Luna Notte".  The wind was blowing when I took the picture.  It was holding the top against the fence.  As soon as I finished, the wind died and the top ended up on the ground.

I had four blocks left over and made a small table topper.

I have a quilt already loaded on my quilter, so this quilt will join the pile!  I have some binding to sew on some mug rugs and then Sunday dinner.,

Instead of shopping yesterday on Black Friday, I spent the day at my quilter,  I finished a quilt for a relative of my cousin.  It is made with "outdoorsy" flannel.

I have also been doing a little sewing--mug rugs.  This pattern was found on Not-So Plain Jane' Blog.

Way too cute!  I will post pics as I finished up some of my other UFO's!

My goal for the FNSI was to get all the pieces of 120 blocks sewn together!  I got that accomplished plus got them all pressed.  Now, I need to square them up and sew them together.

First, however, here is the latest picture of the dogs.  The little black one, Zeke, has finally figured out how to jump up into my chair.  They like to sit in MY chair and look out the window!

Here is the stack of pressed blocks:

And here is four blocks so you can get an idea of the larger quilt.

The quilt is for an outdoorsy kind of guy.  I want to have the quilt finished by tomorrow and will post a pic of the finished product.

Thanks to all who commented!  I think that I need to make topper #3 again, and again!  LOL. 

PS  All of the table toppers were made with leftover blocks or scraps from larger quilts.

Good morning friends!  I have finally made it--my 300th blog!  Thank you all for stopping by on occasion to visit!  And I am having a giveaway.  It's pretty simple, just tell me which of the three table toppers you would like to have,  I will use the "Random Number Generator" to pick the winners.  Which ever number is picked first, gets the table topper they want.  Maybe you should pick a first and second choice just in case.



Drawing will be held Friday morning.  Good luck!  There will probably be a little surprise in each package.
Thank you all for reading my blog over the past few years.  It has been a good outlet for me!

I haven't posted in a week or so because I am getting ready for my 300th blog and giveaway.  In the mean time I have been working on a quilt that I found in "Fons and Porter's" September/October 2011 magazine.  It is called "Pick Up Sticks".

I am using Moda/Sandy Gervais' "Late Bloomers".  When finished it should be about 65" square.

Coming soon, Blog 300!
