I almost had an anxiety attack when I typed the title today!
I feel sooooo far behind. I need to get my planner out and go over my "to do" list!
I am happy to say that I finished this fun table topper for my Etsy shop this afternoon and I'll list in the next few days. I have a few more new items to list as well.
I realized that I enjoy the sewing , but I don't enjoy taking photos and resizing photos and listing items on Etsy....hmmmmmm
A few weeks ago I won 14 Christmas fat quarters and I was super happy to have them!
I used 2 of them on this topper.
The white background actually has little dots and dashes that remind me of snowballs.
The red and white stripe seemed perfect for the binding :)
I used solid red for the backing. Being new to quilting, I should have used red thread in the bobbin so that my wonky quilting wouldn't be so glaring on the backside.
I made a mental note for myself for next time :)
The pattern I used is called "Delightful" by Pieces of My Heart".
I used Christmas ribbon on the 3 ornaments
instead of using co-ordinating fabrics.
This is the f/q bundle I won!
Man I love the internet!!!
The rest of the fabrics for this topper came from my charm squares that I received from the Charming Christmas Swap. I "borrowed" my friend Amy's photo because I forgot to take a picture of mine. We received 56 different charms squares
and I used all the pinks and teals and few co-ordinating pieces for this project.
Now what will I do with the rest????
