If I didn't have that fabulous quilt you made for me earlier, I'd buy one right now!  Hmmmm.....maybe I need a backup.....

You never know when it may get so cold in FL that  you need two quilts.  LOL!

I finished this top last spring, it's waiting for layering, pinning and quilting.   I missed Friday's sewing day in town, where I can use tables to do the work; but we are having a sewing day down at the Fish Hatchery next Saturday (30th), and will be able to do it then.   I also have a stripey quilt top finished, it's different, needs to be pressed, then layered and pinned for quilting, it's also going down to the fish hatchery.  [The Fish Hatchery offers their friendship room for small groups to do stuff like this, free of charge.]
The quilt pictured, the focal fabric is Horoscope fabric.

Not much into horoscopes, but the stipey one sounds very interesting to me.....convincing myself I DO need a back up quilt!

It'll be at least next week before I can get a picture of it.
But, it'll be similar to this one, except the strips run up and down instead of across, and no borders (this one is taken across the quilt instead of up/down).  [Different fabric, too.]

If I can ever get the binding done, I will have two tabletoppers available.  I'm hand sewing the binding, and it takes me forever, which is why I rarely do it by hand.

I'll let you take a look once it's done, you may not be impressed with the fabrics in it, it's an interesting collection of fabrics, a little bit old fashioned.   I can show you a picture of the fabric I picked for the backing, its a cute grey and white.

I rather like it too, it's the only color I have in stock but it comes in a few others, as well.

Made it to the sewing day, yesterday, got both quilts layered and pinned together.  Today, it's raining, so I am quilting; I'm halfway through the strip quilt.  I may even have time to get the other one done today, does help that I do simple quilting and everything by machine.

Ok, got two quilts finished. the strip quilt (don't know if you'll like it Diane, now that you can see the fabrics and colors), and the horoscope quilt.   Will post a complete pic and a close-up pic of each for you.
And, now I can get back to my yellow and blue quilt I started last spring, lots of pieces to deal with, so I set it aside.

It's not as much "fun" as my horsey quilt, but it's a great back-up quilt.  So, yes, I'll take it and help you pay for that pretty mare!!
