Thanksgiving Table Top

Last year Mom & I saw a Thanksgiving Table top at a quilt shop in Utah.  The pattern is by Ashby's attic.  She's created a whole series of these table tops & a whole bunch more!  I've bought several patterns at PineNeedles I found the pattern and finally got around to making it and quilting it myself.  Here it is:

I like it and can't wait to finish my Christmas one!  Then winter, Then Spring and then I'll need to get the other patterns!

Thanksgiving Countdown

Last year I saw a post on Moda Bake Shop for a 12 Days of Thanksgiving Advent Calendar designed by Melissa Mortensen .  I totally wanted to make one, but couldn't find any Thanksgiving/Fall fabric left.  Earlier this year I found some from last year's collection at a quilt shop and scooped it up & here's what I made:
It probably doesn't look the best on this wall because the wall color is similar to the background fabric.  I finished it on the 1st day of the 12 days of Thanksgiving - but I didn't put anything in the pockets.  I really want to think about it and make it meaningful - so now I'll have a whole year to prepare!

I've been working

I've been working on things, but I haven't been taking pictures.  I made a few more of those pool bags, and making some headway on some block of the month stuff.  Right now I'm working on a thanksgiving thing and I will be taking pictures of that when I finish.
