Fall Table Topper Finished

Two things to share today:
My Island Batik Ambassdaor Project is done.

We were to make a table topper of any size for the Fall season, 
using fabrics from our allotment. 
I chose leftover colors that I associate with Fall in Michigan. 
I had an easy time cutting out the pieces using my Acccuquilt GO! 
Sewing was quick since the pieces aligned accurately. 
The hardest part was deciding how to quilt it. 
I had read a few posts from Christa Watson which gave me a better perspective 
(no pun intended) on how to quilt the foreground and background. 
So here it is on our coffee table and ready for Fall:
 and some close-ups. Please keep in mind, 
I am a confident beginner when quilting on my domestic sewing machine.

The Road Home Row Along is nearing its end. 
I want to thank all of the people who stopped by my blog to read about Michigan,
download my pattern 
(which is available until October 31), 
and left such nice comments.

On October 11, visit Seams To Be Sew to see the Show and Tell of projects
the designers have made by combining many of the rows.

This coming weekend I am going on a quilting retreat at Tustin, MI, again, with The Mitten State Quilters. It is a great group of Michigan quilters and a fun retreat. Looking forward to some Fall weather and many finished projects that I will post when I return.
