    I am starting on a red, white and blue flag pillow. I hope I don't get sidetracked. With the colder weather, maybe I can stay with it. Got a lot of it planned today and am working on machine embroidering the 50 states' names on the stripes. Oh, this is for me!

    4 table runners complete, there are two of the one at the top (gold triangles).

    Blue and yellow quilt complete, no idea what my camera did to the lighting/exposure, but it'll do for now.

    Nice work on the runners! Lots of mitering there, too. I did my barn quilt in that bottom pattern.

    Tree skirt top. If I sew the last seam, and add a circle of fabric to the center, it could be a table topper.

    That's a fun topper! Reminds me of my men's tie projects.

    Enjoying everyone latest creations! I am now inspired to finally complete a tree skirt begun some time back.

    This baby/lap quilt I am slowly working on is at this stage now. I think it needs another narrower border in pink to frame it off. The photo is poor I know, it looks greenish but the print is blue and pink. I will have to machine quilt it for lack of time to hand quilt.

    While I figured out (find) an appropriate fabric to bind my tree skirt, I've started on this panel project...

    I found this fabric a year or two ago, and just couldn't resist, it's too cute. Started working on a quilt; pieced side borders and using border stripe fabric for top and bottom borders (may make them the same or use both "prints" one for each).

    I just got some buttons from a button friend in Australia. The male kangaroo is called a jack and the female is a jill. The creature that looks like a hedgehog is a echidna. The bird is a kookaburra.

    The black creature under the boomerang is a Tasmanian devil.

    The ones on the left look like ceramic, but they are made of bread dough. The button maker is from Tasmania.

    Your quilt is so beautiful. I just love blues and yellows together.

    Is that strip quilt made from a jelly roll? All of them are really nicely done.

    I think it was a small jelly roll, plus a few strips I cut, as it was a small jelly roll, there weren't quite enough strips to make a lap size quilt
