One Day Retreat

On Tuesday I attended a sew in with some of my friend Michelle's lady friends from her guild.
The theme of the day was working with the "twister" templates.  I've done multiple twisters in the last few months but it was an opportunity to spend the day with Michelle and sew.
I chose Halloween fabrics from my stash and cut my own 5 inch charms. 
Here is the topper once I cut my charms up with the twister .

I was able to get the border on while I was still at the meeting place and even had backing fabric with me....but did I remember batting?  Of course not....so I had to wait till I got home.  Well, I had other things to finish first so this kind of got put on the back burner but tonight I did some cross hatching on it and got a black/green/purple dot binding on it and voile!  I have a finished table topper.  I just love the purple spider and spider web border fabric!!!

OH, and I just had to show you the wagon I bought last year to transport all my project "stuff" when I go to these sew ins.  I was able to put my sewing machine, all my tools, fabric, show n tell, lunch etc. and the bag on top is 3 quilts I picked up from Michelle that she quilted for me.  It's so nice to be able toget everything in 1 carrying  wagon to get it inside!

What a fun little wagon~ Looks like even though it's little, it's mighty strong~
