table topper

Here's what I made today.
I wanted something kind of small for my kitchen table.
The picture is taken outside so that I get good lighting.:)

It was super easy.
And it's always nice to finish a project in ONE sitting!
I'm thinking of making them for family and friends
for Christmas...
with Christmas fabric, of course!
I tried some free motion quilting.
See the leaves?
Not sure that black was the right thread color.
But, that's what I had on the machine....
and well....you know.....it's so much easier to use what's already there!



Here's the back.
I did NOT use batting.
Just flannel on the back.
It's nice and light and....
I LIKE IT!
Thinking about doing a tutorial with the
Christmas fabric on my blog...
What do you think?

  2. Yes! Go for it. 'Twould be great for Christmas presents . . . or hostess gifts to give during the holidays. Great gift for teachers. Gosh, nearly any female you know!

    I like the fact that it's smallish . . . good size.

    Now I'm all the more bummed I didn't get to quilt at all today. :o(
