Don't Panic 2... & a giveaway coming

You guys are so funny! I didn't mean to publish the previous post...I was trying to save the title*...and the combination of a slow, misbehaving computer (that ultimately crashed), a nextdoor neighbours computer suddenly appearing on our wireless network!!! (no I can't understand why either) and a tired and flustered blogger...'nuff said...

Anyways, what I was trying not to panic about...
was all this fabric cut out, stacked and ready to sew...
Today I sewed these two tops together...today...you read right...I can't believe it either!

 I keep thinking about doing a tutorial for the tree. I drafted it in my "Quilt Wizard" programme and it comes together easily. There are two hard steps: aligning the strips at the top left and bottom right and and trimming the edges to bind it...
You can see the one I made a few years ago.

I also sewed the border strips onto this table topper too...it's the leftover from a table runner that I made for the school's end of year raffle.
 This is a gratuitous picture of the table topper in the new laundry...I have some of the cupboards, but still waiting on the linen press and broom cupboards to come. 


Also on December 9 I will be hosting a giveaway for Quilting Gallery Blog Hop Party - there's a button on my sidebar...
see you then...or maybe before...If I haven't... you know...panicked in the meantime!

thanks for taking a peek over the fence...

*PS Blogger dudes...MOVE that "publish" button FURTHER AWAY from the "save" button...please!!!
