12/5 WIP

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced
I started a couple new things this week.
This is a Christmas Table Topper I made for a friend, all pinned to sew down the binding.

This is the one that I made for me which I added some coral and blues to the mix.

And this is how it looks in use.... that is a mechanical snowman that dances, a family favorite my husband got from a co-worker... hmmm... nuff said on that.
I will say that I love my tumbler Accu-quilt die, but it bent!  I am not happy about it, and it now either bows out in two places or just doesn't cut those spots.  I see that they are on sale 40% off this weekend and think I am going to replace it, though it ticks me off that I have to.  Again, nuff said.
And the Granny Squares and the Old-New Wave are both quilted and tonight I complete pinning the binding to sew down tomorrow.

Sitting quietly waiting for attention: Rainbow blocks, Chubby Stars QAL, American Jane blocks, 36 patch QAL, HST project, Pinwheel Sampler, postage stamp, Swoon, Round & Round


  1. Your Christmas table topper turned out really nice. Great Job!

  2. Great table toppers! Have you contacted the company to let them know the die bent? Given the cost of them I'd hate to have to buy a replacement. Maybe they'd replace it or give you a better price on a new one.
