Fall Table Topper

I love to finish at least one project for Finish it up Friday (even when it's Saturday).
You'll see my project is very similar to the mini quilt by Linda at the Quilted Pineapple  which was my inspiration.

I just love her colors and design.

I'd already been making lots of flying geese for a Christmas project to be shown on the 25th for Christmas Corner (you get a sneak peak) and so when I saw Linda's mini quilt is made from lots of flying geese I was mentally all set to begin.
I cut eight colorful 5 1/4" parent squares and (32) 2 7/8" black background squares to complete the 16 flying geese using the no waste method.

Finished size is about 21".
Here is an update on the home sewn dish towels from a previous post.  I used them and they were very dirty so washed them in with some other towels and I even added a little bleach and they washed up well.  The cotton twill one shrunk a little more than the Kona cotton (which of course could be avoided by prewashing the fabric.

Thanks for visiting!
