A Finish and A New Beginning

I have been participating in Freckled Whimsy's Charm Pack Quilt Along. I actually have kept up with this one and got my retro-looking blocks together last week.
Over the weekend I was able to to play with the setting
and then put the blocks all together.
I am planning on having a "wave" border after it's quilted.
I have one of those wave rulers... a way to do a
scallop look without the pain of binding a scallop.
And since I got this and a few other things (which I can't show you just yet) accomplished...

I pulled this pattern out (from my purse, where it has been for a couple of weeks getting rather tattered)
 and thought I would look at my stash and see what would come together!
I had seen this made up at Cottage Quilts a few weeks ago and thought it was really fun.
The trees are 3D!
The Courthouse Steps block measures 15". The tall trees are 23".
It's another one that calls for 5/8 yardages for the large trees. *g* Hard to pull that out of ones stash... but I got creative and it worked.
(You can google this number: PS30180 and get a free PDF of the pattern.)

I bought a kit of the figgy pudding last fall, and sorry to say haven't gotten it together yet. Hopefully I will one of these days, they are really cute when they're done, with the 3-D trees. good luck!
