|The backs however, are all matching. Just a solid fabric, but I think I would call them reversible. Pretty fast not that good job. I decided yesterday afternoon to make them, and finished about 20 minutes ago. It's about 4:40am now. I did take a few hour rest in the middle. |
Kim of Kim's Big Quilting Adventure is doing Scrap Basket Sunday, so if you'd like to see some scrappy projects go here .
She also asks what constitutes a scrap to us. In this case, it was leftover orphan blocks and bits and pieces. Also, leftover bindings, but I must confess that I went to yardage this time for the backs as time was an issue.

|Progress has been made on my hiddenwells, but I'm not too thrilled with it. I think that I'm going to cut off about half of the red border and call it finished. It's for my brother to give a friend, and that is his vote, too.|

Since I finished 2 table runners and a table topper, I linked up with crazy mom quilts Finish it up Friday here.
|My six inch nine patches.|
|They look the same in the picture, but these are four and a half inch nine patches.|
|I can't seem to stop Picasa from assigning weird dates. I actually finished this table runner 040913. Green scraps in the side on the left, so I figure it's part of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.|
|This was actually finished 040713? Again one side has green scraps. They are not really out of shape, it's my photography.|
|And I almost forgot this green finished 0410. My Rainbow Scrappy Tripalong, or Bargello? I'm kind of liking this Tripalong though.|
|And here, last but not least, my snowballs and nine patches. Sorry, this whole post is out of chronological order. I kept adding things to get everything in one post. |
|I tried not pressing my block until the end, but my center isn't too good on this one. I pressed my bonus block as I went, and the center is better.|
|My crazy bonus block.|
I don't know about my expected company, when they will come, so I'm trying to finish everything as my focus will change to cleaning and cooking when I know they're coming. I just have one more RSC project and I'll be doing it asap (it's done, my snowball and nine patches). I also have quilts my brother has asked me to do for him as gifts for friends that are a priority.
If you'd like to see lots more green, it won't fatten your wallet, but you can visit Angela at Soscrappy here .

|See why I had to make one more. The pie safe on the right was looking very bare and the three table toppers on the left were looking kind of top heavy.|
|The Dresden plate side on the drop leaf table my brother made for us for Christmas a few years ago.|
|The flash kind of washed this one out, but it really looks better in person.|
|The one that started it all.|
|The kitties aren't showing up too well, but I knew that with my cluttery style of decorating, it was bound to happen.|
|I put out some of my new table toppers and the room was kind of lopsided, so I decided I needed one more.|

|My finishes of the past few days. Not bad, plus I used up a bunch of scraps of fabric and batting.|

|This is one side of the table runner I'm making for my coffee table. I think with the other red, white and blues that I've made this year that The Fourth of July will be well represented.|
|I'm not sure if pictures like this should be tall or wide.|
|Collage of a group of collages, the table toppers that I have made this year. You'd think I'd had enough, but I still have a few spots, and then there are always holidays.|
