I love the colors in this table topper. Fall is my favorite time of the year, I just love the colors all around. I made two of these centers. I'm keeping one for myself. Don't know if it will be this one or the second one. We'll see when it's done. But here is the top of the first one. It's the Connecticut Block from Carol Doak's 50 Fabulous Paper Pieced Stars Book.

Mom and I went to the Quilt Odyssey in Hershey this year and Carol Doak offered 5 classes. Mom and I signed up for 3 and I got my fabric early, cut it all up, labeled it and had it in bags waiting for the class. Then mom came over and I was helping her get hers ready and we went back over the cutting instructions and I was doing things I didn't remember doing when I cut mine. So ... I go back and look at mine and it turns out I had made a slight boo boo. I had cut out the fabric for the Bright Stars class and we were in the Bright and Bold Spinners class. So ... I set it aside and promptly forgot about it. (Of course we had to hit Lancaster on the way to Hershey and I got all new fabric for the Spinners quilt there.) Then this weekend I was trying to "finish up" some projects and found it, so I put it together. I used the same border print as I did for the Spinners class. I love the bright colored mushrooms. It's got a bit more purple and pink than I would normally use, but it still looks pretty good.

I saw some cute Halloween quilts and table toppers on my favorite online group and I got a sale flyer from Joann Fabrics that said all Halloween fabric was 50% off, so I went and bought some fabric and made myself a holiday table topper. It is even brighter in person and makes me smile everytime I see it.

My favorite online group just started a new Block of the Month. This one is 7" on point scenic blocks. The first one is a tree next to a path. According to the designer it's supposed to be an apple tree next to a road. I made one like that but then I also made one as a fall tree with a stream next to it. I can't wait to see the rest of the blocks for this quilt. Looks like next fall I'll have two wallhangings ready for quilting.
