The next project I will be working on each Sunday until completion is this Patchwork Cats table topper.

I'm excited to announce that my blue schoolhouse quilt is complete.

Oh what JOY this little table topper from orphan blocks brings me!
It measures 18.5" x 39". I quilted it using the Halo design from Urban Elementz. It was a great place for all those little novelty pieces of fabric used in the prairie points to land. The stocking and the wreath were made by my bloggy friend, Julianne. She abandoned a project. They had been sitting in my scrap basket for quite some time. I just got tired of digging past them and made them into a project.

Busy, busy. Here's what happened this week:
I finished this little orphan block table topper for my son's room.
I shortened my sister-in-law's kitchen valance and made a couple of matching mug rugs.
I finished the quilting on my blue schoolhouse quilt.
I'm getting close to finishing my Autumn Stamp Collection SAL at Pinker n' Punkin Quilting project. Time to look for a frame.

We have had some beautiful fall weather. I finished planting some seeds given to me by a dear friend. I post pics like this in my blog so that I can refer back to them in the spring when things start to grow.

My sister-in-law asked that I make the valance for her kitchen shorter. She is a coffee lover. This is a thrift store find that she most likely found for a buck. Now it is super short for her kitchen window. I also made a couple of surprise mug rugs from the fabric that I cut off of the valance. Fun, fun.

I'm still getting a few stitches here and there done on my Autumn Stamp Collection SAL at Pinker n' Punkin Quilting.

I was supposed to be quiting a vintage Flower Garden quilt for a lady out of state. I decided to bump another one of my RSC projects up in line to be longarm quilted. My blue schoolhouse quilt is on the frame! I just adore this little crib quilt! Hopefully I'll be able to get it finished this week as well.

Because I liked my little JOY table topper made from orphan blocks in the wrong scrap basket, I put these plus blocks left over from my Be Positive quilt. Now they are a finished little table topper. It's not that exciting, but it's done. It will most likely end up on one of my son's dressers in his room.
It measures 14.75" x 17.5". Of course I had a scrap piece of batting and a scrap piece of backing that fit it perfectly. I also had a piece of binding in the binding bin that worked. When finished I only had 4" of that binding left. I longarm quilted it with the Halo design from Urban Elements. That design is really starting to grow on me. I like seeing the neat circles.
Here's the back:

I have finished the t-shirt quilt that I have been working on for a person that lives out of state. She and her sister put this quilt top together for her son that graduated in 2020. It was my one main goal to finish this quilt for her by the end of the month.

I'm moving this t-shirt quilt (that belongs to someone else) forward today. It is finally quilted. This is one of the blocks on the quilt. The owner requested that the quilt be quilted with a "light fill". I used my Circle Lord Egyptian Eye giant template board and used every other groove.
The backing fabric she gave me is a royal blue. It seems to pick up every piece of lint in the area.
On to making the binding. It is the same royal blue fabric as the backing.
