Scrap Quilt Top and Afghan Finish

It's been a long week here.  The heat has been excessive, and there is no end in sight.  I saw our thermometer go as high as 106 degrees a few days ago.   We lost internet and phone for about 24 hours.  The repairman said that it was probably too hot in our garage for the router boxes so he replaced a few connectors, and we were up and running again.  Before I could get on the internet a storm blew through with lots of wind and very little rain, and we lost power for a few hours.  Somewhere before that the motor in my vacuum cleaner burned up. 

All of that means that there was a lot more time to sew and crochet.

I finished this quilt top last week.  There are 2,080 pieces. 

 
 
This is truly a random scrappy quilt and really not my cup of tea. 
 


I'm not sure how I'll quilt it. 


With the blocks that I had left, I made a small table topper. 


I also stitched these crocheted granny squares together and have the borders almost finished.


I have my flag table toppers and my red, white and blue knit dishcloth ready for our barbeque tomorrow.



Happy July 4th.  Have fun and be safe.

 
Thanks for stopping by today!
