Miscellaneous for Monday

After a horrible, terrible, no-good week last week (mostly because of work), I was busied myself this weekend being busy.  I ended up finishing things after starting about 20 other things including putting this quilt top together.

The pattern is from Moda Bake Shop (here's the link Christmas Table Topper by Rachel Griffith) and I made mine with two charm packs of the Max and Whiskers line by Moda and changed the sashing to 2-inch finished instead of 3-inch finished.


The blocks are disappearing nine-patch blocks that I made the last time I was in Michigan.  I couldn't find any sashing in my stash that looked OK so ordered a little of the blue print for sashing and binding.












 
I'm thinking that this would be a good quilt for Edgar Poe.  I think the retro colors and playful styling match his personality. What do you think?


I also completed half my Honeycomb Schnibble (is half a schnibble a schnib?) I am diggin' this quilt and hope to get working on the second half this week.









On my way home from work today, I ran some errands. A trip to Target yielded the usual Tahhrrrrr-jay stuff and I couldn't resist some new school supplies pens (love love love shopping for office supplies). And I popped into the nearby bookstore for a copy of the new Quilts and More magazine.

I like your table topper better than Moda's original. Sometimes they stay too safe with color. The blue adds a wonderful zing to yours. Edgar Poe looks happy with your decision. Karmen

Took a trip to Target today myself and came back with the same magazine and some other treats :-) Your Honeycomb quilt is looking great.....I guess I should start on mine.
