SOME FINISHES AND BINDINGS TO REPORT

This post has a couple purposes in addition to the normal quilting post.  First of all, QuiltShopGal has a Creative Goodness Weekly Linky Party to show what we have been working on, so I am showing 3 finishes and a WIP (work in progress).  Second, tomorrow I will also link this post to JulieKQuilts for her linky party for January's Binding Blitz report.

This table topper was shown before I put the binding on, so now it qualifies as a finish for the week as well as a binding for the month!


I liked the pattern a lot, so I decided to make another one in other colors for spring and I am almost finished with the quilting on it.


I bought the lilac fabric several years ago and had never used it.  The other fabrics were acquired more recently.  I love lilacs as we always had them in our back yard when I was growing up.


This month I joined a quilters guild in McMinnville, OR and they make baby quilts for the local hospital.  This quilt will be donated to that cause.  I had the scrappy 4-patches already put together, so I just layered, quilted and bound it this week.


I love the "cow" fabric on the back - I got it at a garage sale a few years ago and was holding on to it for the right project.


I also finished this table runner this week.


I hope you will check out these blogs and maybe link any finishes you have.  BTW, prizes will be drawn for with each one!

I love how your table is decorated and that the chairs too have their own little quilts. Both color choices are great on the table topper. Nice to be able to change it out for the seasons. That is a very nice baby quilt and so nice to be donated. The specialty cow fabric is so cute. Your table runner is fantastic! Thanks for sharing all you have today. It is inspiring.

I love the table mat in both colors! It is a great pattern, and you quilting is perfect for it. The other two projects are cute too. Do you ever slow down? ---"Love"

I like those table toppers. I'm particularly partial to the lilac one and the beautiful quilting you're doping on it. I enjoyed the peek at your little chair quilts in use, too.

The photo of your finish on the table looks so cozy with all of the little quilts on display.
I, too, have lots of lilac fabric I have never used. I have 13 lilac bushes in my yard! That is a very pretty topper.
Great little scrappy 4-patch.
Pretty purple table runner--you have been very productive!

Wow! Did you stop sleeping? I love the lilacs table topper. They were all over my Mom's home town and I still love them.
So many cute finishes. Thanks for sharing.

Love the table toppers - I have a serious soft spot for equilateral triangles!

Look at you go! It was slow there for a while when you were in transition, but after that post about your sewing room being set up, you've made up for lost time! I love the table runners and your quilting is amazing. How do you come up with such great motifs? (I'm left scratching my head, pounding it against a wall, telling myself "no more just swirls!") And the baby quilt is sweet and I love the cows on the back. Keep us posted about your new adventures with the new guild - I know I'm happiest on days I get to go to guild meetings and I hope your guild is the same for you!
