TGIW and a winner!

TGIW folks! I realize that not too many people get excited about Wednesday, but I've had a pretty bad week so far, starting with a nail in my 2-week old tire that I had to drive an hour home on back roads at 1 am [by myself]. But hey, when you start the week off like that then things can only pick up, right?

And it's definitely good for one of you...
The winner of the JOY charm pack from Urban Stitches is Robyn! Remember, she's hosting a huge Christmas fabric swap right now if you're interested. I know she's making a quilt and hoping to have all different fabrics, so hopefully this charm pack helps in that goal! 

And for those that didn't win, remember that you can use the coupon code SewFestive10 at the Urban Stitches shop until the end of July! Thanks Anna :)

As for me, I finished up this triangle log cabin table topper last week:

I had already made the top and just needed to quilt and bind it and get it to the store so they can hang it up. The class starts August 2nd, so I needed to get going!

If I'd had time to sit and ponder the quilting for a few days I think I would have done something different. I quilted straight lines in a concentric triangle in the center of each log cabin and then I FMQed in every other area. All in a light gray thread. I think it needed something a little more geometric, but oh well.

I used a great Kona teal color for the binding and I think it really frames the whole thing well.

Tune in tomorrow as I have a tutorial for my stop on the Let's Get Acquainted Blog Hop! :)
