New Project

Last night I decided I needed to make something that wasn't red black and white or yellow black and white. I went digging in one of the fabric closets and found some fabric from a friend, who happens to be coming to visit this week. So I figured it would be cool to use it so when she gets here she can see it in a place of honor. I haven't made a table topper for my new house yet, so that was the project I picked. The fabric is Mary Englebreit. The table topper came out pretty good, even on the back. Bright primary colors always look so sharp against black. Took less than 4 hours, start to finish; quilted and everything. That's the kind of project I like -- immediate gratification. And it goes really well with all the other tea stuff in my dining area.

What a great way to spend 4 hours! Looks beautiful, and your friend was most likely pleased as punch with how you used her fabric. Beautiful! --Cat
