A November Finish!!

Yay!
I have a finished quilt to share this month!

My sewing machine has been busy the last couple of days
and I am so happy.

AND a Christmas gift is checked off of my list.


My goddaughter asked me for a table topper for Christmas.
She has a new antique kitchen table and wanted something
bright to put on it.

Bright I can do!


Following this tutorial,
I used a charm pack of bright batiks
 and also cut 5" squares
of the turquoise and pastel swirl batiks
and began piecing.


I used straight pins to baste the "windows" to the base
and this made the quilting so much easier.


It surprised me at how easy it was to stitch the bias edges
over the windows to make the design.
I sometimes put one pin in the bottom of the curve
and just kept stitching and moving around the quilt.
Quilt as you go projects are wonderful!


The finished table topper!
This went together so quickly and really is striking.



This is such a fun pattern to make.
I see more of these in my future!

Please visit Patchwork Times to see what others are creating.

Happy Quilting!!

You make it look so simple in your pictures. And the finished product looks so complicated. Very pretty!

This is beautiful! It's so my colors! I have done the technique before, but mine was very different and wasn't done as a quilt as you go. Thank you so much for the tutorial link!

It looks great! I tried that technique one time, I was not as successful as you. I take my hat off to you.

Very very pretty! I've got a magazine page torn out that had the circle edges left raw, but your finished work is so crisp and nice.
