Christmas Table Quilt 2...well almost!

The top is finished!! I used Thangles to make the half square triangles, each is 3" finished. I am ashamed to say how quickly these went together! I used the beautiful blue fabric because it was cut into squares and the total pattern lost on the previous quilt. I love it, and it has already told me how to quilt it!! (I hope it works.)

This is the back. Ditto with the green ornament fabric. Just had to show it where I could enjoy the overall effect. The blocks were left-overs from both tops!! Bonus.


These are the fabrics with enough left to make napkins. Good size scraps!!! (Yes, my vacuum can be seen, just the handle and switch. Surely I am not the only one that takes quilting breaks between rooms!!!)

These are the scraps that are too small for napkins. They are loved though, so I will be saving them for a piano scarf in the future. That project was not on my doo-doo list for finishing this year, so alas, I have lost several to this year's list, and added one to next year's list!



These little beauties were supposed to go into the back of today's quilt. Alas, I made them too small, and didn't feel like remakes... Beyond the ironing board you can see the totes with our Christmas decorations. No tree up yet. Consider this a Moments picture!!!
Be sure to visit everybody else's projects by clicking on the Sew and Tell Friday button on my side bar!! Good fun and great ladies!!!
I am off to finish that vacuuming and start supper. Tomorrow afternoon, Christmas Tree!!!!!
Merry Christmas,
KT

  3. Lots of fun things - the project looks wonderful, and what a smart idea to make napkins with the leftovers! I feel guilty too when something is easy to make, but you have to think about the fact that others may not know how to make it easy, plus it is still harder than going to the store and picking up somehting.

  4. I like your entire project...and I love the idea that you are making napkins...That makes things even more "green" - no paper napkins!

  13. Great Thangles project. I love your pinwheels. I like the leftovers for the napkins too. My Christmas tree isn't up either. I have a small table top tree which will have to count. We spend Christmas elsewhere, so we'll be decorating that tree on Christmas Eve....assuming no flight delays...which would be a first if there are none. Happy Decorating!
