Too bad nobody will see it!

This carrot just cracked up!

I've always been easily amused.  For example....
  I pulled this carrot out of the bag and burst out laughing.  Not sure why.  I think I've watched too many episodes of the Muppet Show.  This carrot should be singing!

 I'm still working on last year's UFO's, which I think I mentioned before.  Last week I noticed there was no quilt on the table at one end of my living room.  I'm not sure there was one before the Holidays.  Now it looks so bare!  So I decided to finish this piece to use as a table topper.  I went to my favorite place for quilting inspiration, and got started.  I had a blast doing this one!

The picture here is the back.  My best friend Mary thinks she's odd because she's always flipping her work over to look at the back.  I think we all do it.  (Why else would Leah show us the back of all her samples??)
I chose grucky fabric for the back since I would be facing this quilt and the backing wouldn't be visible. I turned it over when I was done quilting for the day and realized it was pretty enough to hang on a wall just the way it was!
This is how the back looks now, with the facing in place.
And this is the front of the quilt. It's from a "Little Charmers" pattern, by Anka's Treasures.  The fabrics are by Amy Butler.  The charm pack was a gift from my friend Sharen a couple of years ago. (Thanks Sharen!)

The quilt is on the table, but I'm not sure I like it there after all.  :-)

Close up of the quilting- hardly visible on the front! 

I am grateful for:
Relatively warm winter days.
A good grilled cheese sandwich
Being so anal, er- organized.
Good things to look forward to.
My hubby, cos he loves and puts up with me.

  1. No offense dear, but I like the back better than the front. the quilting is wonderful! If your table doesn't like it... mine would! *winking*
