One Down Fifteen to Go!

Here is the topper marked and ready for basting






























Here it is quilted. The centers are yo-yos with a little yellow bead in the middle. It's hard to see the posies as they are so dark, they are 3 different purple fabrics that are fairly close in color.











And here is the finished product. I was very pleased with the results and the amount of time it took, so I think this will be the one.




Tonight I'll probably hand quilt on the next hoop quilt. I've pulled fabrics for a new bag and for another project I'm testing for my friend, I'll probably work on both of those tomorrow.

I'll need to get applique pieces ready for the next topper, too, I'm really hoping to have these done well before the party date so I'm not quilting frantically at the end!

So just a quick post today, I hope to have some good updates in the next couple of days. My family will be in and out all weekend, which should leave me some good sewing time. Until then, happy quilting!

My first thought when I saw the table topper was WOW! Love it! Then I scrolled down and saw it quilted - double WOW, double I love it! Your relatives are going to be lucky to be able to take one of these home with them at the celebration!

That is very beautiful, I love the depth created by all the different purple fabrics. The yellow bead is a wonderful touch.
