I finished up a small UFO that I’ll call Rainbow Flowers because of the floral fabrics. I had the quilt all pieced and had never gotten around to quilting it. Once I get that part done I always put the binding on right away and then it is done!
If these fabrics looks familiar to you it is because I used them last April to make a
center-piece table topper which you can read about here. From the comments the other day I realized that everyone….but me….calls them table toppers so that is what I’m going to start saying.
I won the great fabrics from Pauline at Phoenix Heirlooms and when I went back to read my post I found photos of a bunch of batiks I bought….and haven’t used yet. I think that is the neatest thing about blogging – looking back at things. Do you do that?
This quilt is only 24 inches square and was made using a combination of the scraps from the table toppers I had made and the other fabrics I hadn’t used. Now if I can remember how I made the blocks I think this would make a great pattern.
We didn’t get as much snow as they had predicted….only about 4 inches. I took the first photo of my quilt this morning out on our deck and here is what the Mississippi River looked like. Geese in the sky, eagles way out by the buoy and some little ducks (that I can’t remember the name of) right out front.
Here are a couple young eagles out on the ice. The river has never completely froze over this year. Several years ago we had a cold, cold winter and the river froze solid enough for a couple coyotes come over from the islands across from us. You should have seen them trying to get the geese….didn’t happen.
