I have finally started on my own king size quilt for our bed.  I have had the fabric for quite some time, bought when it was on sale for a very good price.  The pattern is Town Square by Sweetwater. So I fished it out and had to think about what each piece was for but finally got underway and cut all the blocks first and I am now half through sewing the 25 blocks only 2 seams to go.....!!


We have a small table topper at home that we use everyday instead of placemats and we love it.  So I decided some time ago I would make one for our caravan and bought a couple of lovely peices of fabric while we were travelling along the Great Ocean road.  I finally has some time to make something for myself.  Secret Squirrel quilt is done and on its way to the quilters....Yay :-)

 I decided on a four patch pattern and bought some added fabric and... it was done the top at least I finished in 1 night... a fairly late one :-)  The next night I added some batting and backing and quilted with wavey lines which are quite easy especially on a small item.  Bound it by wrapping the backing to the front and stitched with the machine and it was virtually finished in two nights.  These small quick projects are very rewarding and I now want to do another one for our table at home.  It is certainly good practice for free motion quilting.
