FINALLY Back On My Machine

Another fun, easy project to get my juices flowing again...this fun 24" square tabletopper that needed a back, quilting, and binding. I did an easy and fast quilting job on this while it's low and slow around here because of Spring Break (love those mornings when you don't have to set the alarm!) so I finally got to get back into the sewing room. The binding is sewn on and just waiting to be stitch down...but I'm holding off on THAT because this is heading to Arizona with me when my new grandbaby comes this week. (you know...on those nights when the baby is soundly asleep and her two toddlers went down without a fuss!) It just might come back undone, after all. Love these quick projects...unlike my husband, who wants a REAL quilt, one for cuddling up with. Whatever...

And this project is all done and just waiting for me and my sisters to put together. So they are tacked on the wall board and waiting for June to show up, when I take my "annual" trip to Payson (I've only been there once, last June, but I'm saying that this is just going to have to become an annual thing) to visit my sisters who are working on this with me. I changed the "Bingo" block to "playing cards", as we are not really Bingo players, but HUGE card players, these cards belonging to our favorite family game "Make-A-Million." We can't wait to present this to mom and dad in July!

This is blurry...but it's the best I could get out of my cheap camera. Just an idea of the work involved...


  1. Amazing job, Mom! Btw, the kids loved the Easter goodies. We will call you tomorrow.

  2. I love the colors in that table topper! It's a good one. Can't wait to see the finished grandparents cabin quilt, hope I get a chance sometime. You probably will get to work on that while you are here even during the day. And By the way, I have ONE toddler...I consider Marce a boy. He is 5 years old after all ha ha

  3. You are so good at quilting! This is really cool!

  4. Love how the Make-a-Million cards turned out. I can't wait to see it all come together.
