    Hi Everyone: I know how much I enjoy all your pics; so I hope you enjoy these. The quilt is my first attempt; just 11.5 inch blocks. But I had a double size chenille bedspread that I cut up and incorporated. Boy, did it do a number on my rotary cutter!
    The second is a small table top that I used both flannel and cotton.

    I will post pictures of the next two projects I am working on when done.

    God Bless all, and keep stitching!

    Love both your quilts. I really want to do a table topper, but am afraid the cats would slide it off the table. LOL :lol: :lol: :lol: I really love the chenille quilt. The effect is wonderful. Now I want to try it too.

    Both of your projects are great. Did the chenille ravel a lot? I have always been afraid to use it because I thought it would.

    Thank you everyone for your kind words. The chenille unravelled a little bit; had lots of 'fluff' on the floor after cutting, but not too bad.
