A small finished table topper and some blocks

Hi everyone, 

I’ve had such a busy month. 
I helped my parents pack their things to move back to their home town. 
They we living in a house that we owned. 
When they decided to move, we stepped into action to put it up for sale. 
Carrying two houses wasn’t for us and we didn’t want to continue renting it. 
It was a lot of work to prep it for sale. 
But it sold very quickly. It was a relief. 
I hardly had any time to sew this month.

I had planned to make a table runner out of the blocks that I used for the my quilt guilds BOM. 
I had it all designed, but I was too tired to make all the blocks it required.
So, I made a mini version. A small 20 inch square table topper.
I really like how it turned out. 
I may still make the full table runner, but this one will do for now.

I also worked on trying to catch up on my Arkansas crossroads blocks that I’m making for the Rainbow Scrap challenge 2017. I just finished my blue blocks. 
I have to make the orange, pink, and cream/white coloured blocks still to be caught up. 
Here are the blocks I’ve made so far.
I’m really loving these blocks together. 
I hope you like my blocks.

Those blocks look wonderful...can’t wait to see them with the other colours added in too. Very nice table topper too. I bet you have not even made a dent in your scraps... LOL

I am glad you were able to sell the house quickly and can relax again. Love your topper and your crossroads quilt is gorgeous.

The table topper turned out fantastic! I adore all those Arkansas crossroads blocks for the RSC. It will be a fantastic quilt when you're finished. Happy sewing! Andrea

That's a super table topper and I like the loopy quilting you used. The Arkansas Crossroads is gorgeous!
