A Totally Useless November Quilt Top

I've been hard at work filling my ORT jar! "Jar" in this case, is a relative term though because I had to save my ORTs in the giant bowl that usually sits on the dining table, filled with fruit. I'm afraid all my ORTs this month are quilting ORTs, hope you don't mind!

Here is the reason I have no cross stitch threads to show you...

I finished my second quilt-top! Here it is laid over the guest room bed. Sorry for the wrinkles and wonky looking blocks...they truly aren't wonky just completely un-ironed! This top turned out fantastic. I'm getting much better at piecing - most of my points align! The top is now in the basement, getting sandwiched. I'm almost done pinning and will be able to start quilting it very shortly. Maybe by next TUSAL I will have a finish to share with you!


We want to see your ORTs! Leave a comment on this post with a link to your November TUSAL post so we can come visit! If I hold a Totally Useless giveaway your comment will earn you an extra entry.

Wondering what a TUSAL is and why all these people are posting pictures of rubbish? Click here to learn more and join the fun!

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Hey, orts are orts - if they come from cross-stitch or other craft!
