A bit of "Fresh Air"

On our Wednesday Sewing Day with my soon to be Mother-In law Gail, I started making this charm square table topper. I've had this Fresh Air charm square for a while and never knew what to make from it. With Gail's advise and the use of her "Thimble Blossoms - Simple Charm" pattern this table table was born. lol.

I took this opportunity to finally use my quilting frame. I have been quite nervous about using it, and did not want to put a quilt top on it, only it stuff it up. So I used my table topper as a practice run. There was a couple of bumps in the road at the start but once I had all the right settings it was going smoothly.

Next quilting project to tackle now is my "Basic Grey - Urban Couture" quilt top. Fingers cross it goes well. I will be back to post some pics later in the week.
