WIP Wednesday - 09/05/2012

September is so busy already and my calendar just keeps filling up!  I am surprised I am getting any quilting done at all!

Yesterday, I made this little table topper for my 4 year old's night stand.  

I pieced the background then basted the quilt.  I quilted a simple cross-hatch pattern through the squares.  Then I ironed on some shapes I cut out with my Go! Baby using Steam-a-seam 2 Lite.  I proceeded to machine applique the quilt shapes down using a buttonhole stitch, quilting through all layers at the same time.  Then I finished it off with a decorative stitch in the border.  
As you can see, I still need to stitch down the binding.

Today, I pieced some more log cabin blocks.

Tomorrow I am working so I think the next time I get some sewing time will be on Friday night.  I should have a finish posted for TGIFF though, so stay tuned!
