This table topper, made of luscious gold print Kaufman fabrics was fun to quilt. I used Nancy Haacke’s Snowflake Simple pantograph using a tan colored So Fine and a Cream colored Bottom Line. It quilted up nicely! The snowflakes in the design coordinate with the snowflakes in the fabric print.
I used my new machine binding technique. This time, I applied the binding to the back, folded over to the front and stitched using MonoPoly on top with a blanket stitch (narrow width, long length). My Bernina balked at sewing with MonoPoly on top. After five tries, rethreading, cleaning, changing needle and anything else I could think of, I finally gave up. I put MonoPoly in the bobbin and used a light tan Bottom Line on top. It sewed like a dream. The Bottom Line is so fine, it basically fades into the fabric. I was again quite pleased with the result. Now that my machine binding turns out better, I am going to make it my go-to binding method. Definitely is a lot faster to do it this way!
This table topper will be a donation quilt. Hopefully it can benefit a charity.
