A gifted-to-me dainty wool wreath, and the first flannel mini quilt I made... two of my favorite things this holiday season!

An April finish...

... cutting it kind of close!

 


The fabric is pb&j by Basic Grey for Moda.   I adapted a pattern I have made before, using charm squares.  Something about magic binding and the cheerfulness of this little table topper seemed to make sense... don't you agree?  Finished size is 23" x 24".  I like how it looks outdoors with my wicker patio furniture!

I'm off to attend a Minecraft themed birthday party for a very special,  (and handsome!) eight year old... my grandson!

  2. I like that range but always stumbled at how I would put it together. It does look good outdoors. Enjoy the party, I have some Minecraft addicts here too (and they are a little older than 8!).

  10. The pefect table topper for a picnic on that patio. Maybe it's the mustard yellow and catsup red that's doing it, but I'm looking around for a burger and a cold glass of lemonade right now.

  18. Your table topper is adorable. LOVE this line of fabric, and your magic binding adds not only that extra strip of color, but a strip of movement. Good fabric choice there. Isn't magic binding fun ? Well done.
    I have a question about your sweet Easter header. Near the center of the photo, is that a group of fabric covered buttons? or fabric covered upholstery buttons? Beneath the pink polka-dot button, I see what looks like 2 metal prongs.
    (Curious minds want to know :)

  19. Your use of those awesome fabrics was perfect in the tabletopper. I especially liked the red patterned fabric for the border and it's repeat in the binding. Hope the party was super fun!

  23. Hi Kathy, I love your mini quilt/table topper, I like this range too. I actually bought some of the red flowers on the aqua background to make a skirt - but having not made a skirt for about 25 years, it might still take a while to work up the courage to make it!! Lovely finish, and I hope your grandson had a fantastic birthday.
