Two Friday UFO Finishes

It's been a good week of quilting for me!  I feel like I'm getting over my road block of sandwiching, machine quilting and binding.  The key for me is to just keep working at it and use the wealth of information available on the internet to learn about different techniques.

This Yellow Brick Road quilt is about the same vintage as my Blended Stars which I finished last week.  It was also quilted by Nancy Clayburn of Quilting by Design in April 2005.  This quilt is from a kit that I bought at 60% off and it included the backing fabric.  I subbed in a few of my own fabrics (the plaid & the blue swirls for sure since I still have some in my stash) to give it more zip.  My mom also sewed the binding on for me in 2009.  It so belongs here on the bed waiting for me and a great book!

My Halloween table topper is done with little time to spare... I'm thinking it will be staying on my table through Thanksgiving for good measure. The pattern is Everyday Table Topper from "Charmed and Dangerous" by Heather Mulder Peterson of Anka's Treasures. I used a charm pack of Thimbleberries October Glow with coordinating background & binding fabrics.  I'm definitely going to use this pattern again.
