January's Lovely Finish

Johnny Be GoodJohnny Be Good is a little blasé about it, but I'm pretty happy with my finished April-December Romance Table topper, made from the 2012 lotto blocks for April and December.

The color inspiration came from the striped sisal rug under my little dining table.  Notice that Mr. Blasé insisted upon being in every photo.

Table Topper and the Rug/Color Inspiration

This little 30-inch square quilt was my January choice for Melissa and Shanna's Lovely Year of Finishes.  Here are a couple more photos.

And a detail of the quilting (my warm-up for Bloom)

This first lovely finish has motivated me, so, last night, I pulled out another project and kept going.

I've been quiltingI had to look through my blog to see how long it has been since I last worked on it.  Yikes!  It's been three months.  Here's the photo I took on October 10.

I'm now quilting the folded throw in the background–with more loopy feather-ish shapes–and planning to finish this month.

(Then maybe I can finally get around to working on the project with those selvages ...)

Looks very nice on your table--very colorful with that rug. I'll bet that when you go to work Mr. Blase will be up there snoozing. Check for cat hair when you get home.

As all cats know, even table-topper quilts need a cat to show to best advantage. Good thing Johnny Be Good is on the job!

I love the way that little quilt plays with the rug.

This came out beautiful - I love the fact that it picks up colors in the rugs!
Remember, cats rarely show enthusiasm for things that don't have catnip in or on them :)
