Another Post Already

I got all my goodies mailed out today, so now my sewing is all for me!  I love the green fall fabric I used in the table runner, and decided to use the small leftover piece to make a little topper to put with my fall decorations.  I don't put out many decorations for Halloween, but I love those for fall.  Anyway, I can put this one out now and leave it until Thanksgiving weekend.  The scraps I had left were so small that I didn't keep them.  I like the fabric so much it really was hard to throw out those tiny scraps. 
What I had to work with was so small that I had to piece the green border.  But you know, my great aunt Sophie (from whom I inherited my love of quilts and quilting) pieced even the smallest blocks.  She wouldn't have thrown out my scraps.  So this little table topper is for me, in memory of Aunt Sophie, and I certainly don't mind pieced blocks. 

You may remember that in August my husband and I went on a short cruise.  While we were gone, of course, the blogs I follow just continued to pile up on my list.  I finally decided that I couldn't read them all and quit trying.  Well, guess what I missed?  I won a giveaway!  And didn't know it!  Fortunately, 7thsister26 is a very patient person, and waited for me for a month before she said anything about it on her blog.  I was so excited to get this wonderful package yesterday. 

I love all of these lovely Moda fabrics, and I can't wait to find a project to put them in.  My birthday is just before Valentines Day so this is very special to me.  Thank you so much 7thsister26!!

Note to my sister:  If you'd like to read some other lovely quilting blogs while you're here, just click on any of those listed on the right - 'My Blog List'.  They're all great.  I'm so glad you're here!

Nice table topper, its awful when you have been away and there is so much on your reader, I usually try and do a quick skim, but sometimes there are just too many.
