Finally Finished

I finished up this Rural Jardin Twister Table Topper over the weekend.  This has been buried in my UFO pile for ages but cleaning up my studio inspired me to just get it done.

It was close!  This is literally all the thread I had left when I finished quilting.  Based on past experience I was really expecting to run out inches from the finish line: )

For now it's decorating my screen porch...

which is the perfect place to relax on a hot summer day!

  1. Ha! That WAS dangerously close! I do that all the time too. I just got my copy of Angela's book the other day-it's great!

  2. I was JUST taking a break from quilting my small Lil' twister quilt! also doing an all over design a little loppy design.... now I'm NOT running out of thread :-) but that sure was a close one, nothing like being that close and tossing the rest :-)

  3. Eek, that really is cutting it close. I think we've all been there though. Looks like everything was meant to be, including that yummy looking margarita.

  4. What a lovely little quilt! Looks perfect in the screen porch!

  5. LOVE the quilting on this one! So cute! You did such a great job!
