Winter seeds Tabletopper

Another small project completed.  Actually I'm really enjoying the smaller projects at the moment, it's a change from the larger quilts, which I really love making, but with hectic days planning our overseas trip, it's nice to start a project that doesn't take too much time and concentration while waiting for emails to arrive with questions answered re flight enquiries, insurances required etc etc.

I was needing something for our round dining room table and just never found a pattern that appealed to me.  Then along came this cute pattern from Julie at thecraftyquilter.com for a winter table topper which I could make with fabric on hand without having to make a trip to buy fabric.  So without further ado....

Winter Seeds Table Topper


I just did a whole lot of straight line and echo quilting which I feel emphasises the shape of the "seeds".  Julie has a very good tip on how to stitch the binding on the inside curves.  A quick link back to her blog is here.
And here it is in situ....



Thank you for visiting my blog for a brief update.  Now back to planning......

I am linking up with Marelize at Anything goes linky party.

Happy quilting,

  6. Very cute topper! I'm a new-ish quilter and afraid to try curved pieces but someday. This would be a nice small project to try it out. Thanks for sharing.
