More on my Patriotic Table Topper – Happy to report that last night I finished the machine quilting and all that is left is binding and washing/drying. This project has taken me a little longer than I thought it would – instead of easy wavy lines or whatever I chose to customize it – what was I thinking LOL
One of my little Moda Frivols box came in handy – I used one of them to keep the little half square triangle blocks in until they were needed.
A couple finished blocks up on the wall grew into a top eventually.
Before I could call the top done I needed to get my border sewed which involved sewing all those tiny above mentioned squares together – 1 inch finished.
And my table topper using the Craftsy Boundless America the Brave line was done.
The border of my design to hopefully complement the pattern – aren’t the colors bright and vibrant – the only thing I would have chosen differently with this bundle is to have the neutrals a little lighter.
A close up
I will show the topper again after I get it bound and washed – give me a couple days. I hope everyone has a great weekend – we had 1.25 inches of rain yesterday morning and more to come last night – as of 7 PM when I was writing this it had not started – maybe another 2 inches? well at least we didn’t get what other parts of Arkansas did.
I hope to get back to my Quilty 365 The Final Frontier quilt this weekend in between working on binding. I think I have about 75 more circles to make.
Boundless by the yard is 35% off right now – 1 yard is $5.20
If I hadn’t gotten the flannel quilt kit in the last sale I would be getting this one – isn’t it pretty. This is of course a “Laundry Basket” design one can tell Edyta Sitar’s work at a glance “Dream Catcher” quilt can be found here. Oh well maybe it will still be there when my budget is better – unlikely huh – this quilt is 65 x 65 inches – my fabric budget just isn’t going to stretch right now but I would so love it!!!
