Another Wall Hanging

This morning Hunter and I went to my quilt guild meeting! Had a nice time, just business stuff. After that we came home, brought in firewood and cleaned up the house. On the way home, stopped by the mailbox and had an envelope from my sweet friend, Lisa. We are both planning on doing Bonnie's new mystery quilt starting Friday. After all of these mysteries, I still did not have the Easy Angle Ruler. Lisa sent me one!!! It was wrapped in some fabric and 4 little blocks! I haven't had a chance to call her to thank her, her son was having surgery today so I didn't want to bother her today. I'm not sure if the 4 blocks were leftovers from something or if she had started something, but I used them to make a small wall hanging!

Here it is! I sewed the 4 blocks together to make the center. The blue has little pumpkins on it and I had the same fabric in blue and orange. I made a small border with my orange and a 3inch outer border with my blue! So THANK YOU Lisa for this quick and easy wall hanging!!! I went ahead and cut the binding for it too, while I had the fabric out. Now it will go in the pile to be quilted. I will just quilt these little ones up when I have scrap batting leftover.
I also started pressing my strips for the mystery on Friday. I bought some gold fabric to go with these a few weeks ago and I will just be using from my stash. I have tubs of strips precut so that will help with that. I also pulled some larger pieces for the bigger pieces in the quilt.
Tomorrow, I hope to get the quilt finished that I have on the frame. I have been planning on doing it for a few days but I keep getting sidetracked! :)

Great wallhanging! Fabric in the mail is the best kind of mail! Glad you had a good day with your boy! I can't wait to 'watch' you make the mystery quilt!

How neat that you had the same fabric to finish it up! Lisa sounds like a very thoughtful friend.

Seems these days sidetracked is my middle name! To darn many irons in the fire for sure.

You get so much done while I am running the roads. Martha and I decided to go to KMart and WalMart after guild meeting, as we were coming out to the car. We also stopped at Shaddy Shack on the way.
