It's Finished!

I wanted to share my finished table topper with you . . . this one took a while, but I love it. I began this for Sunni's Farmers Wife in Your Life blog hop, and I thoroughly enjoyed making the squares and designing a home for them. 

I used the fabrics from the Butterfly in the Crossroads squares (I've heard from some quilters that this is also called the Tulip block) for the scrappy binding.  

I prefer a narrow binding on my toppers, so I cut the fabric strips just 1.5 inches wide. I know, some of you are gasping at my maverick ways, but I do use a single thickness of fabric on some toppers, since no one will be pulling it over them and snuggling . . . I figure they don't have to be quite as durable. It makes for a nice, narrow edge, and I think the color changes add something to the topper.

I have some other projects started, and I hope to show you some peeks soon. Till then, hope you find some time to sew - and if you need more fabrics or supplies, please visit our lovely sponsors!
I'm linking up today with the Shady Porch linky party, and with Katherine's Corner and Margaret at The World as I See It. for the Thursday Favorite Things linkup!
