Intermission I & II...

This year (for a change) I've been busy quilting tops and haven't spent much time piecing.  However, I did take a brief 'intermission' last month to piece a few table toppers .  I wanted to refresh a couple spots in my house, including the dining room table, the coffee table and a small sewing cabinet.  I used the fabric Hometown by Sweetwater for all of  them and adapted the pattern Pathways & Crossroads by Acorn Quilt & Gift Company for the largest runner.  I actually still had the receipt with the fabric and pattern from when I purchased them.  Originally I had a different project in mind when I bought them back in 2011!  I still love the fabric, so I'm glad I finally got around to using it.

I haven't had a chance to quilt the runner yet, but I did manage to quilt the other two.  (The yellow star was a test block I decided not to go with.)  This is the new mat for my coffee table.  No pattern, just a bunch of HST's sewn together.

And this is the new topper for an antique sewing cabinet my husband recently refinished for me.  Again, no pattern, just HST's sewn together.

Both of them gave me more opportunity to practice my free motion quilting skills and I'm really enjoying it!  I wish I could remember who I got the idea from so I could give them credit, but it's totally slipped my mind.  I saw someone put small quilts in a basket and I found this wire basket at Target that fits perfectly under the sewing cabinet.  Too cute!

I've been spending most of my time quilting a prayer quilt lately.  Hopefully I'll finish in the next couple of weeks.  I am hoping to get back to some piecing soon though as I find I'm missing it.  In any case, here's a sneak peak of the quilt I'm working on...
