A Finish -Hooray!

Yesterday (aka:Saturday) - I started a project to make a table topper from a kit that was given to me.
Yesterday - I worked on the topper. And worked
---and quilted
---and put on a binding
Yesterday - I finished it!

The quilting is mostly free motion.  I started with a funky version of a "square flower" in the center - but I added my own quirkiness to it. Then I used wavy lines and swirls for the chevron areas and the small squares.  For the outer border, the free motion foot was used for some organic "sorta straight" lines.
Hooray for a Finish!

I wonder if I can do three of these without borders for the center of a quilt. I had some other ideas for quilting that I could try if I do.  Hmmm...and that center square could be pieced or appliqued or.......
I think the muse is whispering in my ear again.
---but why doesn't she say "Let's finish some of those projects you started and haven't finished yet." Why?

Congratulations on a beautiful finish! Love the idea of three of them for the center of a quilt - and I'm glad your muse if back whispering in your ear. My muse is whispering to me that I should label the ones I've done lately - and she sounds a lot like my Dad - ;))

Gotta love a project that is quick to do from start to finish. I know "quick" is a relative thing, and you put many hours in, but still, the next day you are finished? Amazing.
