A little quilting -

On that last round of patches -

Is all it took to finish the Christmas Block Table Topper 6 x 6 - ;))

A close-up of the stitching -

The middle tan and white patches are the ones I stitched "sideways" -
And it was easier to push and pull the narrower strips from side to side -
But I had trouble keeping my horizontal lines straight -
So I'm calling them "organic" - LOL -

And a couple of photos of the back - so you can see the texture -

I'll take some "glamour" shots after I get it bound and labeled -

But the quilting part is DONE -

And I have O Happy Christmas basted and ready to go - ;))

If I can get another top basted -

I can try to keep one "in progress" and one "ready to go" -

Then - if I can do "a little quilting" every day -

Maybe I won't lose my "rhythm" or my quilting mojo -

And I can make a dent in that Mountain To Be Quilted - LOL - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

You really do have to keep in practice with the quilting mojo or it gets rusty in a hurry. I try to do something like one of the quilted notebook covers just to keep mine from going downhill.
PS - your quilting looks fine to me.

I like the quilting. The color thread is perfect for this piece. I do not FMQ but I think I may give it a try at some point this year...we'll see.
