Hi there! I hope you all had a good week! We have a lovely bundle to share with you today! Be sure to scroll down to see what I've made! :)
I am loving this bundle! I am smitten with this color combo. I wanted to recreate a block I used in a table runner I made a while back - but use just one block. So I resized the block and changed up the star a little bit to make it a 30" block, and I love how it turned out! So instead of a table runner, I made this fun table topper.
I really wanted to showcase those lovely prints in this bundle - so that's why I decided to make such a large block. The pink and aqua together make me happy - plus the dash of red in the prints and the binding I picked is just perfect!
|30" x 30"|
This is a super quick project, and you could definitely get this done in a day. I quilted this on my domestic machine with simple loopy-loops. I think that's my go-to pattern for quilting. It seems to really work well with a lot of my projects.
Let's not forget about the backing - I am swooning over this pink dot with flowers! It is the perfect backing for this topper!
Alright, let's get started!
