A Quick Table Topper

A couple of weeks ago a
friend gave me a charm pack.
A few days after that I needed something
mindless to do,
so I decided to use the charm pack
in a Cathedral Window table topper.

I cut some yardage into 5" squares for the 
"window panes"
and laid out the charm squares for the background.

After a couple hours of sewing,
I had this...

I didn't have enough charm squares to make it 
but I like it anyway.
A friend saw it over the weekend and loved it.
It is now on her kitchen table!

Mindless sewing is the best!

Here is the link to the Tutorial
in case you are interested in making one!

I'm linking to Design Wall Monday
at Small Quilts and Doll Quilts.

Happy Quilting!

For you, who has done several of these, it might be mindless sewing, but I still can't wrap my head around how it happens. I'll put it on my list to learn -- NEXT year!

I tried doing blocks like this once and it didn't turn out well, because of that I am very impressed at how well yours turned out. It is really beautiful.

Of COURSE your friend loves it. This is beautiful! I don't know how to do cathedral window blocks. Would you consider posting a tutorial of your method? "Mindless" sounds good -- that's about how high my powers of concentration will go lately!

Going to tutorial now! Thank you for sharing....you are so generous in spirit. :)

This is really pretty and what a good way to use up charms.Mindless sewing is what we all need at times....(but this looks far from mindless.) Blessings----hope it's warmer where you are than where I am....lol.

What fun to be able to use a charm pack and have this turn out so cute! I too like symmetrical, but this works and so glad you found a home for it!
