Tackling some UFO's - Another finish

I've been working on some UFO's in my spare time and finished my Christmas Table topper.
It measures 25.5 inches in diameter.

I started this one in November of 2011.  I made one just like it for my friend for Christmas that year and liked it so much I decided to make one for myself at the same time, but I only got as far as making part of the top.  So when I picked it up this week I had to add the center, quilt it, and bind it.

This is a free pattern from Phillips Fiber Art using their 10 degree ruler.
It is called the Mini Ten Table Topper. Once you sew the strips together, it is just like cutting and sewinging a dresden block together, just on a larger scale.
This is my 5th finish from my my Q1 Finish A-Long list.

I am also going to link up to Handmade Christmas for February.
Several of the items on my Finish A-Long list this quarter are Christmas projects, which fits right in with the goals for Handmade Christmas.  I want to be ready for Christmas this coming year before December comes around.   This topper will decorate my small circle table for the holidays.

After I got the binding done on my Christmas table topper I pulled out my Wild Thing quilt.  This UFO is also on my Q1 Finish A-Long list.  I have had some of the same projects staring at me for few weeks so I decided I needed to working with something different today.  I was able to sew all the quarters together for each block before I was called away from the sewing machine.  When I get some more personal sewing time I will sew these into blocks.
