2014-13 Batik Ferns Table Topper

batik-ferns

This little table topper was fun to make and it took on extra magic when I quilted it in a dense fern texture digital pattern by Ann Bright.  The teal blue flange pulls out the blue in the batiks and the solid black border adds drama and contrast.  I use this as either a table topper or a table cloth and it works out well.

I particularly like the detail in the quilting.

2014-12 Horse Table Topper

horse-table-topperThis table topper started with a few leftover stack and whack blocks made from horse themed fabric.  Because of how the fabric is cut, it is difficult to recognize the horse theme, but I know and I enjoy the hidden partial horses.  My great grandfather was a blacksmith, so I especially appreciate the horse theme.  It was densely quilted with a cobblestone pattern and makes a great candle mat.
