It's a miracle!
Earlier this summer, I decided I wanted a bright and cheerful quilted table topper for my kitchen table. I spent a few hours ooohing and awwing over some that I found on Etsy and decided that I could probably make one for myself?
DUH? I do have a sewing machine and I have drawers full of fabric? I should probably make use of what I already have and is already paid for. (What an original idea?)
So I set about to make my own quilted table topper...basically I had no pattern in mind or any sort of organized idea. I discovered that I already had a 4" square pattern template and I had some fat quarters that I thought would work out to be cheerful and bright for the summer. There was my idea - 4 inch squares cut out of fat quarters and trimmed in RED!
I don't know why I bother worrying that the fabric matches or not - it's not as if anyone in my house has a clue that the thing is even on the table? I'm sure I could ask any one of them and NO ONE would be able to tell me what colors were in the topper, much less if they matched or had a theme?
Next up is a table runner than I am working on for fall. Any bets on whether or not it's finished by Valentine's Day?
