A new pattern and you can order Karen's creation here Paper piecing is fun! The Table topper...I used the rest of the Portabello Market fabric so it makes my piece a bit busy...
And the Place mats... They are all ready for the quilting. I will come back with my "Around the Table" set displayed on my round table...

This is the project I am working on .. (It has been one of my favourite for a long time. )
and the one I choose for "My Guild Project"
The fabric is "Portebello Market" by 3 Sisters.
It has an appliqué component and
so on meeting and sewing nights, I can choose to sew on the machine or do lap work.....
It is a fun project to do and it uses fabric from my stash that I have been procrastinating to break open "the Fat Quarter Bundle"....

Our feathered friends visit often in the bird feeders and the berries on the 'Flowering Crab" tree.I could not open the door for fear they would fly away.. They were the most beautiful yellow!
