Mystery Quilt Top

Okay, I got the top finished last weekend and then I had to find someone tall to hold it up so I could take a picture. I really like the way it turned out - specially since I just pulled 3 fabrics I thought would go together that happened to have the correct amount of yardage to do so. So here's the top.

I still have to decide what fabric to put on the back. I'm sure I can find something in my stash - but I have a bunch of little wall hanging quilts sandwiched that I need to finish first. Really should not have started a new quilt, but it intrigued me when the directions said the top could be made in a day. Problem was I got started late, decided to preshrink the green and pink, then got involved in the Super Bowl Game.

However, it's now in line for sandwiching and finishing. Course, it's at the bottom of the list, but at least it's in line.

I'm off to work on those wall hangings this afternoon. I've gotten the oil checked in the car, the breakfast dishes done, and put out the recycle bin for pickup tomorrow morning.

Hope your Sunday is going well. Mine has sunshine outside and I'm totally relaxing inside. Till next time!

Super Bowl Sunday

Okay, I admit I watch the Super Bowl for the commercials. Didn't think a lot of them this year. They just did not have the pizazz I expect for the money they paid to run them.

Now I have to wonder where all those Denver Bronco fan friends of mine are. They are mighty quiet tonight. Did they all miss the game and just don't know they lost yet? Are they hiding under their desk, table, bed in shame for pre-bragging? While I have to admit I'm surprised that Seattle Seahawks won, I have to cheer as I am a native Seattle Woman. Yep, I was born there - don't live there anymore. And my team didn't make it into the Super Bowl, so I decided to root for my birth town. Not the best reason, but the only one I could think of.

While watching the game, I participated in a Mystery Quilt that was out on line. Parts only available today. I saved them all and I have the pieces cut to start putting together. Should be able to get the top together this next week if all goes well. Then next week I'll post a picture of the quilt top.

Okay, I'm off to grab some dinner and finish a book.
