    I started this quilt sunday and I think it is coming out ok. It was a kit from a quilting retreat. The instructor chose the fabrics and gave the instructions to complete it. I am not crazy about it, so I am going to change it up some with blue forget me not dimentional flowers after it is quilted. Which is what I will start tomorrow.

    The table toppers (candle mats) have theThanksgiving fabric dotcom ( Dottie) sent me in the ornament swap last friday. I got right on making it up so I could use it this thanksgiving. I used an easy six ruler to make them.

    The last pic is a pot holder that I was trying out a new pattern with. I like it and I think I might make more of them. Really a fun block to make with the fussy cuts in the center.

    I hope you gals likey!

    Thanks so much! Here is the back of the runners. Don't you just love an easy stitch in the ditch?

    That quilt is beautiful. I love the fabric. And those table toppers are awesome and perfect for fall. Cardinals are my favorite birds so your pot holder is perfect for me. Great job on all and thanks for sharing.

    Thanks girls!

    This was the original potholder fabric that came in the tiny kit. Cute but not my favorite... :thumbdown:

    Oh I love them all! Do I get to pick one to keep? Oh maybe the last one that you don't like with the pig in the middle? LOL I love the candle mats. How did you get the centers to line up so nicely? Nice work!

    Sure frannie! Pick one! My pleasure... :~) pm me the addy.
    The centers have to rotate so the seams don't destort each other. These are all pressed clockwise! LOL!

    Yes. My son bought me a stitch in the ditch foot and I love it. Life is so much easier.

    Beautiful quilt Red and I LOVE the star table mats. Those are 60 deg diamonds, right? I can do that! I might copy with Christmasy fabrics for my craft fair if I may! :-D

    Thank you all so very much. I really appreciate you girls and your wonderful supportive comments. It is so nice to have ladies such as you giving such positive comments on my work. It makes me want to stretch myself further into the craft.

    Something told me to change the colors of the four patch inside the blocks to a more defined colorway. It turned out such a mish-mash of design. Oh well.. Next time I will listen to myself!

    k3n You would flatter me to no end, please copy! These were fun to make.
