This project makes a nice sized table topper (you can purchase the pattern on Craftsy here). I chose the wonderful Avalon collection by Fig Tree and some Bella unbleached white for this whimsical mini which measures 23.5" X 23.5". The border is Heidi Pridemore's Whimsical Workshop (in navy) for Blank Quilting.
The quilting is straight line diagonals in both directions.
The backing is a low volume print from the Sew Stitchy collection by Aneela Hooey for Moda.
I bound this table topper in some solid Kona Coral which gives it a nice pop of color.
Turbo this is so cute! Love the fabric.....and it's the perfect size......for my bag!!! Ahhahah. About time I say..Dr. Pillow!!
this is really cute. I love the little candy pre-cuts, they are great for quick little projects
How sweet... I bet they make anti theft devices that match the colors;-)
This would look great on my ottoman/coffee table! Love the happiness it evokes. Better hide it in March!
Terryt1955 Oh crap - I was going to put it on the bedside table in the guest room - might have to hide it now! LOL.
No it would be perfect on the bedside matching the guest bed quilt. I will just have to contain myself! That is if Conni and Cathy don't beat me to it. Perhaps we better get Mary out here after all!
No, only 3. Mary promised to be the Enforcer!
Carolmarie Thanks, Carol :) Well what you all don't know is that I have dozens of projects in progress ... so I can finish a couple in a matter of days but they've been hanging out almost done for months...it just makes me look speedy when really I am a helpless project starter with tons of unfinished projects :)
Terryt1955 I will be the enforcer...well maybe... There are just a few items I might have to pay extra baggage charges to bring back with me;-)
True Well Gimli might get distracted by Gizmo - once she stops hissing at him, he may find her rather attractive. And yes, you can wave the seam ripper - and bop people on the head with the rulers.
Geesh....what did I do??! I will need insurance when I visit you....with True bopping people on the head with her ripper! So brutal.. Course Cathie can stitch Terry and me up! Got it covered Terry!!
you know Terryt1955 is encouraging you to put the topper in the guestroom to match the quilt so she can take a ready-made set home with her. And I'm thinking True as the enforcer is like the fox guarding the hen house. Now me on the other hand, would never ever walk off with something as beautiful as this topper (or any of the other wonderful things you make) and I would never use my technical expertise to foil any anti-theft devices you may install...
Caribousmom If I were visiting you, I promise not to "borrow" too much. But could you ask True to bring that leaping st. Nick pillow... And maybe Skynme could bring the tote... And HawkFan could bring the chevron quilt... And you could leave the table topper out. Oh the list goes on. Don't worry about the big empty bag I'm bringing.
Hmmm...sounds like we all need a swap entitled..."Better to Swap Than Steal" :))) This is truly lovely Wendy...it really looks like you need more than anti-theft...you need armed guards!!!!
You got it- I will make it official! But I will make it in the Spring...give everyone enough time to really plan and make something awesome for their swap partner!
Caribousmom Well it's either do a swap or we all just come to your house, distract you and "borrow" all your gorgeous pieces!
Mymble Hmmmm, I'm on the fence...I would love to have you all at my house. I could hire security guards while you were here :)
Caribousmom Gives new meaning to the idea of a "security deposit" eh? You could just have a waiver form to sign with a small...er...."fee"...whenever anyone visits...and this would have the added benefit of adding to your Stash kitty!
