Paul’s All Paid UP!!

Peter will not be robbed any more as Paul’s been paid!  I finished the Rob Peter to Pay Paul quilt and am going to turn it into a table cloth for the 5th wheel…it just needs the three Bees- backing, batting and binding! 

I am thrilled with this little number…I still cant believe I made a quilt with curved blocks!!  There is no way that I would have attempted this feat without the help from my Lady GO! GO!  She made it easy and fun!  YES, FUN!

Let’s zoom in for a close-up…no she’s not perfect…but for me SHE’S AS PERFECT AS SHE IS GOING TO GET!!  Besides if she was perfect I would freak if we should slop mustard or spaghetti sauce …this way a few stains will add to her charm!!

image I used a whole Layer Cake of Blackbird’s Garden Party (minus a few of the light beige floral prints) and with the small scraps of leftovers I cut some scrappy narrow (1 1/2”) blocks for an additional border.  image

So hopefully I will get her completely finished and back on the table in time for our trip down south.  OK…OK…maybe I will take her off the table when we eat…at least for the first year!  :o)

Have a wonderful Wednesday and Happy Quilting!~P

NICE!!

Mary said...

It looks great! In your previous post you mentioned trimming you blocks you were not sure which line to square up. That happens to me a lot. How did that work out?

Karen said...

I was wondering if you used a layer cake and you answered my question. Very well done. Paul is appreciative that you got him paid. But what about poor Peter?

loulee said...

Looks good enough to eat off!

WoolenSails said...

That looks beautiful in your new trailer.
I like the idea of making my own items to personalize the camper. First I need to clean it out next year;)

Barbara said...

So pretty! I love the fabrics you used. No way would I eat on top of this!

Jansie said...

Wow, that is really beautiful. I'm going to have to take another look at that fabric! I am so thrilled seeing everyone use their new Go! cutters. Amazing stuff. Well done!

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

Wow it's beautiful!

Penny said...

Ooo..beautiful! Now, all I need is to win a GO and Rob Peter to Pay Paul !

Robin C said...

wonderful job. Looks great in the trailer. Can't wait until you take off on your southern roadtrip, I love all the quilt stuff you find on the way although it does cause me to go to the shops and buy. Stay home! NOT!

have a great Wednesday!

Lisa Marie said...

Absolutely beautiful! Get some clear plastic to lay over it and protect it so you can enjoy it while you eat on it and not worry about the spills.

VickyB said...

Great work. Now that is what I call using up all your scraps. It added your own personal touch. I also need a GO machine to help me get my projects ready and my stash used up.
Have a great day!

Darlene said...

Oh, it's beautiful, Sweet P. Lady Go! Go! is a good helper. :-)

Mary said...

Ya, I agree with Lisa Marie. That is too pretty to eat on. the plastic would work great. I rob "Paul" at my house to pay Peter, John, Dick and Harry when I go shop hopping and buy stuff, (ie: too much fabric!).

Lynda said...

It turned out so beautiful! I sure don't see any mistakes. Oh, I think I want a GO.

Poppyprint said...

So beautiful! I love it that you will decorate your 5th wheel just like home. Why not? This table cloth will be the envy of everyone else in the park - they'll all want to come over for dinner!!

AMKreations said...

Jackie said...

Paulette, your table topper is wonderful! It looks fantastic in the new 5th wheel. It also looks perfect to me!

Deb said...

It came out perfect!! I really like the fabrics too.

Michelle said...

It looks fabulous and the fabrics are gorgeous.

Brenda said...

Beautiful. I love it! Such pretty colors.

Lovie said...

Love how it came out. And that border frames it perfectly, it looks to be about 1 inch wide?

I have enjoy following your progress with your GO and dies. This die has moved to the top of my list.

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

Love it Paulette! If I had a GO, that would be my first project!

Mimi said...

You did an awesome job - love the fabric you chose too! I should try something out of my comfort zone too! Thanks for the inspiration!

Julia said...

Carol said...

I love it Paulette. I'll have to think about getting this die sometime. It looks great in your RV.

Quilt Hollow said...

BEAUTIFUL!!

LesQuilts said...

Hi Paulette!
I'd still cover that little gem with some tablecloth clear plastic, like from Walmart!
It's much too pretty to let anything else come in touch with it!
I think it is great! My friend who made one of these, put yoyo's over the corners where the petals meet, added some charm and you couldn't tell.
Take care, Leslie

Janet said...

Great job! I'll have to add that die to my wish list!

Ariane said...

Oh! It looks wonderful. Perfect for you table. I can't wait to see it all done. Hugs Ariane

Lori said...

Wow! That is really fantastic Paulette!! I'm pretty impressed with the Go! And your sewing skills!! That's a lot of curves.:)

Sandy said...

That turned out really pretty! It will look wonderful on your table.

Sara said...

It looks perfect to me--very precise piecing:) : )

Yes I would probably take it off whenever something I was eating made for a bad stain;) Other wise for a sandwich or something light go ahead. I sound like the table cloth police!!
