Moose Trax Table Topper No. 2

And now, mine is finished, too.  The pinky purple may seem like an odd choice, but there are leaves in it, and I have a rain tree in my yard, which turns gold and pink in the fall.   Now to hang it up.   The first one reversed to a pumpkin, this one to a tree.  It is the Tiny Tannenbaum pattern, but I feel like it is appropriate for fall, too.  After all, one of the main things people look forward to is the leaves changing.

Regifting a Gift

My newly refound friend gifted me with a kit to make a table runner from the pattern and fabrics on the left (which I love), and so since there was enough fabric for two table toppers, with fabric to spare, I decided to make the toppers so that I could share.   I was proud of myself that I had pretty much depleted down to a few scraps my autumn fabrics, so I had to make a visit to the store to do a little replenishing so that I could make them reversible.  This one is hers, last time I got the pumpkin and she got the autumn tree, I haven't finished mine yet, but this time I will get the autumn tree back.  Since DH has a doctors appointment in Gainesville today we will be passing by the city where she lives and I hope to give her hers so that she can enjoy it for the rest of the season.   There is still fabric left and two pillow motifs that match the winter scenes, I had hoped to finish a pillow for her, but unfortunately ran out of time and energy, but I think that it'll make another little surprise gift that I can give her before the end of November, and it'll be pretty with the Christmas (winter) side.

It's a Sickness

I couldn't help myself, I had 4 pumpkin sized stripsets left.   My husband said the pumpkins look like footballs.  I'm thinking Florida Gators, New England Patriots.  Just have to watch for fabric.

Reverse of RSC May Table Topper

I finished this top for my dresser this morning, the other side is the year round side, and of course, this is reversible to Christmas.  I got the snowmen as an incentive for a shop hop a few years ago, each shop gave you one or two.  I gave away a few, and these I decided would be a good solution to my runner.  It's about 20 by 60 inches.       
I didn't center the snowmen, as I knew that the back would be filled with jewely boxes, perfume and such and I wanted the snowmen to not be covered up.  I didn't include the other side, as it is part of my Rainbow Scrap Challenge post for this Saturday.

Enough Table Toppers?

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.  

And the one more.   They all have red white and blue on the other sides, so probably the end of may I'll flip them all over.  These should do me for a little while, I do plan to make more (hey, I have dressers and night stands) but first I need to catch up with my BOM's and quilt-a-longs.  
After that, I need to get my brothers request quilts done. 

My Living Room Needed One More

I put out some of my new table toppers and the room was kind of lopsided, so I decided I needed one more.

Yay, more green scraps for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  My brother asked me a couple of days ago if I'd make a baby quilt for a friend, so I agreed to do that and to do a lap quilt for another friend.  They will be simple, but hopefully will be well liked.  I'm anxious to get started.

Last One, At Least for Now

My coffee table runner is finished.  Tomorrow, I'm hoping to get my living room cleaned up and put all my table toppers and table runner to use.  About 20 by 48 inches. 
PS  I was just thinking that this would make a nice door banner for the Fourth of July.  Maybe, next year.

The reverse.  Spring Wonky Strippie.  I was going to make a green and a purple.  Then I thought why not combine them and use the green part for RSC.  I really wanted the blue binding for the flag, so I decided why not green, purple and blue.  It's still springy, at least I hope so.

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

Table Runner - What a Surprise

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.

April Rainbow Scrap Challenge and Hiddenwells Goof Up

This is what a hiddenwells looks like when the blocks are put together wrong, oops.  I don't feel too bad though, it will be mostly covered up with a lamp and knick-knacks.  This one is only about 21 by 21 inches. 

And the reverse side.  I didn't do as well as I would have liked centering it, but I promise, it is square, although it doesn't look like it here.   This side fits right into Angela's Soscrappy, which you can visit here to see lots of green, as it is the Rainbow Scrap Challenge color for April. 

Since I made my hiddenwells smaller, I got 5 cuts out of each stripset instead of the usual 4.  With the leftovers I decided to make mug rugs.  These are only about 5 by 9 or so.  These are the first mug rugs that I've made, I always wonder if they are actually useful.  I wonder if anyone really uses them.  I made 2 and this is the front and the back.   I can do better when I take time, but these were hurry up jobs.

Hiddenwells Table Topper Finished

It's not great, but it is finished.  It's about 35 1/2 by 35 1/2 inches.  Two more red, white and blue smaller table toppers to do and my living and dining rooms will be ready for summer and the Fourth of July.

I always try to do reversible, and this is the other side.  I think it'll do nicely for part of spring.  It has to share with St Patricks and Easter.   I guess technically Valentine's is still winter, but it seems like spring here in Florida.

Itty Bitty Finish No. 4

It's getting almost embarrassing, but here is table topper number 4.   I think that I have enjoyed making them, but now I'll concentrate on some larger projects, like big table toppers, just kidding, I think.  By the way, the blue side is wonky on purpose. 

It's a Quote "Scraphappy Saturday -- Orange Oasis"

I thought I'd start off with a table topper this month, I'm in the mood.   This will have a red, white and blue strippy back.  
Orange is the color of the month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2013.  If you'd like to see more, check out Angela's SoScrappy blog here.

I made table topper number 3 a couple of days ago.  I should be getting organized and ready for DH to come home, but I can't seem to stay out of my sewing room.  I think he might come home this week, he's doing very well. 

This is why I didn't worry about stars on my flag (see picture above, they wouldn't show anyway, I didn't have an appropriate fabric, and I wanted a quick finish.   Maybe some day I'll go back and applique at least one big star.

Table Topper No. 2 for the Year

It really is square, but it's on the back of a poufy chair.   I was almost finished with the perfect binding for the brown side, and then I remembered that it had to also go with the purple side, oh oh, back to the cream fairy frost. 

Terrible lighting, but you get the idea.  I love quilted table toppers and plan to make a few more.  I haven't even gotten to dressers and such.   Plus, there is the element of almost instant gratification compared to a large quilt.  Another thank you to Angela for her Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  The doll in the background is Sandra, named for my daughter.  They both have red hair and brown eyes.  
As you can see I'm a bit indiscriminate eclectic about colors in my decorating, as well as in my quilts.  I admit to being color challenged.

Table Topper No. 2 Finished

I'm kind of enjoying these small quilts.  This one I think will be good for winter.    
If You've thought brown to be drab go to Scraphappy here and see if you change your mind.

Ant the back, I think you can probably guess.  Same combination of wonky log cabin and Hidden Wells.  I think next will be Valentine's and Easter, but a different combinaiton of patterns.    Meanwhile though, I hope to catch up the June Craftsy BOM tomorrow.  Amanda has already done hers.
