Yesterday I got busy making a table topper to put on top of the electric Fire Place in our 5th Wheel. The Fire Place is right by the door as you enter the trailer. Here’s a picture…see the door on the left.
Now if your husband is anything like mine, he feels the need to empty his pockets the minute he enters the house…and this includes the 5th wheel!…I just know the top of the fire place is going to be the place where everything gets tossed…you know keys, coins, screws, gadgets and gizmos…whatever…So It really needs something like a table topper to protect it from the ‘elements’!
I found a cute pattern from the Fat Quarter shops FREE pattern site~ tons of nice patterns designed by top quilting designers. (Check it out-later!) This one was designed by Marcus Brothers. (Oooops…guess I put my ice water on top of the pattern!) But it’s a cute quilt pattern none the less…don’t you think? (If you click on the Fat Quarter Shop, you can make a copy for yourself-without the water stain!)
Anyways I found a nice Charm Pack in my stash by Blackbird Designs called Old Fashioned Charmed. Got it cut out, sewed the half square triangles and then laid them out to see what it looked like so far.... Blah…didn’t do anything for me!! Looked like the beginnings of a baby quilt..
…SEW…I put it away for another day…when a baby quilt is needed!!
And SEW…I started again!!
This was a JOB for…(Hero Music inserted here…) the Trusted GO! I pulled out some fabric from my stash, fired up the GO!, cranked up the music and within an hour WE had created these stacks!! (I know…enough to make a king size quilt!!…couldn’t stop the GO!)
Guess what I’ll be doing today…:o) Ahhh, life is good!
Have a thrilling Thursday and Happy Quilting!~P
