Wednesday April 25th 




Madame Samm at Sew I Quilt asked a few months ago if anyone would be interested in doing a Blog Hop with Table Topper Quilts.  Well...I just love to make Table Topper quilts and jumped right on the band wagon.  So since I have been anticipating this wonderful challenge since January I think,  I naturally put it off until last weekend and just finished my last 2 little quilts tonight.  Can anyone say  P R O C R A S T I N A T E ?  Well, enough of that!  Here is what I came up with on my own with my own little pencil and my own little brain.

First of all I adore my grandkids...they can do no wrong, they are all so cute! I'm sorry about the picture quality I really need a new camera but I think you can get the drift.
  Here's one for Spring.


Spring makes me want to put some flowers in a watering can, doesn't it make you want to do the same?



And last but not least something for Fall.  Did I mention I love hearts so most everything I make or quilt has a heart on it somewhere.  I found the perfect fabric in my stash for the watermelon.



 So how about a giveaway.  I think it's a good one.  This is a full size Twister tool it makes the prettiest quilts.  I've used the smaller version and made a really cute little quilt.  Also 4 spools of new Isacord thread.  I swear by Isacord, I use it for everything, quilting, embroidery and all sewing, the colors are pretty and it's really strong.
Just leave me a comment and I'd really really really love it if you'd follow my blog!  I'll choose a winner Thursday April 26th.   I hope you enjoy the rest of the blog hop.  I know I can't wait to see what everyone has come up with.

  1. Ok you love hearts - I love anything with crows! So your Fall mini just is special to me. They are all lovely - will have to remember the 'grandma' and little hands, too sweet. Thank you for sharing with us today.

  2. I love the Handprint Quilt that is really special. I think this would look lovely as a yearly quilt that you could add hands to as the children grow older but a little table rug is such a wonderful thought too. Thanks so much for sharing your ideas - this is definitely one I am going to make for my MIL.

  44. Your watering can with flowers is darling and I like the fall one with the crow and sunflower too. I will definately follow you, but for now my computer is not showing the followers where I can follow. Not sure if it's blogger or my computer. I'll check back later. I also like to use Isacord threads, but not for sewing. You do a lot of the kinds of things that I do too. I made a few of those arm caddies, although without the embroidery. I also did the snowman Welcome Friends and Flakes and used crayons and made it into a bag. Hope you check out my blog too. I hope I am lucky with this giveaway.
