Two Finishes

We continued to have great Quilting weather this week, hot and humid, so I did manage to complete a couple of WIPs. The first is the table topper made from the unusual piece of African fabric sent to me by Cathy of She just finished posting about her exciting trip there.

I decided not to quilt the top, but to add borders to give it a rustic feel. I chose two WOF strips of Moda Grunge. After much ripping of wrong-sided seams, this is the look I was after.

A nice bit of orange for RSC18.

My second finish was a lightweight receiving blanket for a one of many babies born to mothers at a Texas hospital near the border of Mexico. This is a ministry of one of our guild members. She now has about 200 Quilts to take down there.

For this I used an assortment of my charm pack squares suitable for girls or boys, with some owls and monkeys to make them smile. I stitched it like a pillowcase and then did some edge-to-edge Quilting to finish it. I’ll be taking it to the guild meeting on Monday.

I’m linking up with Angela at and Cynthia at
