Have I shown you my Blue/Green table topper?
I made it a few years ago now but only got around to quilting it when I got AVA. It was the first quilt I attempted to fmq on my machine and I am really delighted with how it turned out.
I did big free form spirals in the 6" blocks
I quilted lengthened swirls on the appliqued shapes in the border
and on the border, I just did continuous swirls to fill the space.
It might look a little messy up close but as a whole, I really like it. Just needs the binding to be done, which I sewed on the night before, and for FNSI I am going to finish sewing it on by hand.
I used my VERY favourite tool for attaching the binding I always used to dread doing the binding because joining the ends was such a hit and miss pain for me but this tool is genius. It is totally fail proof.....or is that fool proof....anyway, The Binding Tool has earned its place in my creation station.
So on Friday night for FNSI, while watching the *swoon* Clive Owen movie "Derailed" in the bedroom (cause Hubby was watching the cricket) and resisting the bar of chocolate in the fridge, I finished off my blue/green table topper.
The (hopefully) arty shot above and then the tabletopper in place on the dining table. I just got a thumbs up from Hubby.....he likes it!

Good Morning Cath, I love your table topper. I don't know much about cricket, but then I am usually off doing something else if there is even a football game on. The big to do is the upcoming Super Bowl game. I only watch the commercials because some of them are really cute. I like how you quilted your table topper. Have a wonderful day.
