Why I Love Quiltmaking and my Cricut

I know I should have been working on several other projects in the Quilt Que but when my Quilted Tabletop Yahoogroup sent me it's monthly challenge of this quick and easy runner I just couldn't resist. LOL
First I thought I would just print the pattern to save for later, then as I was sorting some scraps in a bag I thought I would just pick out the right sized green fabrics. Since I was cutting some other fabrics I might as well cut these 4 1/2 " squares at the same time, right? I tossed them in a bag to wait for later.
Then it was only 9:30pm I could just start the middle part of the top and before I knew it the middle was done and I had picked the gold and green borders.
Got up Sat morning and thought I would just cut the strips for the borders...won't take hardly any time. Then...TaDa it was a finished top. But...
It needed something more to say St Pat's day so...thus the little slide show LOL
I love it and maybe I will get around to quilting it this year but if not then at least I had a few fun hours doing something just because.
