Description

Sherri over on A Quilting Life is celebrating the small projects this year - and she is generously providing some great patterns to use the amazing Moda precut- Moda Candy.


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.

Conniharns

Turbo this is so cute! Love the fabric.....and it's the perfect size......for my bag!!! Ahhahah. About time I say..Dr. Pillow!!

Caribousmom

Conniharns LOL -I'm putting an anti-theft device on it, Conni! Thanks!

Skynme

this is really cute. I love the little candy pre-cuts, they are great for quick little projects

True

How sweet... I bet they make anti theft devices that match the colors;-)

Caribousmom

Skynme Thanks! I love those candies...and I have quite a few of them too...so always looking for a fun project in which to use them.

True LOL. I definitely need one that matches so it is camouflaged,,.don't want the criminals to know I'm watching :)

Terryt1955

This would look great on my ottoman/coffee table! Love the happiness it evokes. Better hide it in March!

True

Conniharns Terryt1955 Caribousmom well it looks like I may need to fly out to help protect your quilts, etc. I mean it is a tough job but someone needs to help!

Caribousmom

Terryt1955 Oh crap - I was going to put it on the bedside table in the guest room - might have to hide it now! LOL.

Terryt1955

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!

Caribousmom

Terryt1955 ha ha ha ... then I'd have four of you ganging up on me. Oh No!!! flushed

Terryt1955

No, only 3. Mary promised to be the Enforcer!

Caribousmom

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

True , we're talking about you!

Caribousmom

Terryt1955 Thank God for Mary ( True ) ... I need to have someone on my side!!! We'll need to find her a badge and she can wave her seam ripper at all of you when you are misbehaving! Plus she might want to tuck Gimli into her carry on as he doesn't look like he would take crap from anyone!

True

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;-)

Caribousmom

True Oh great - now you too?!?!? I'm doomed. As it is, I have to check Conniharns bag before she drives away. She is probably the worst of all of you! Bunch of kleptos.

True

Terryt1955 Caribousmom if I get to wave the seam ripper I will definitely be the enforcer!! And Gimli will distract them all from "borrowing" things as he is so darn cute... He may steal all your pins though as he seems to have a fondness for them if I am not looking:-(

Caribousmom

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.

True

Caribousmom so Gimli AND I will be very happy;-)

Conniharns

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!!

HawkFan

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) angel and I would never use my technical expertise to foil any anti-theft devices you may install...

True

HawkFan shh...don't tell her...LOL

cally68

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.

Mymble

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!!!!

Terryt1955

Mymble Love the name of the NEXT swap!

Mymble

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

HawkFan Oh I think you're on to something there with Terry and Mary :) And you sound like such a nice person - I know there was no sarcasm there because the font wasn't used! LOL.

cally68 LOL! It would be quite a visit!!

Mymble LOL re: the swap!! Thanks!

Conniharns Oh sure - act innocent!

Mymble

Caribousmom Well it's either do a swap or we all just come to your house, distract you and "borrow" all your gorgeous pieces!

Caribousmom

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 :)

Mymble

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!

Caribousmom

Mymble Ooooh, I like that idea :)

Mymble

Caribousmom Just don't tell anyone it was my idea....or my name is mud...oh yeah...ha ha..my name is mud!

Mymble

Caribousmom Just don't tell anyone it was my idea....or my name is mud...oh yeah...ha ha..my name is mud!
