I treated myself on Mother's Day to a bit of sewing time in the afternoon, away from the custom quilt orders. I had purchased a charm pack of "California Girl" by Fig Tree Quilts and I wanted to make the 23 1/2 inch square table topper from the Summer 2012 of Quilts and More. It was fun and quick to put together. I finished the hand-quilting last night. There is something about the shade of blue in this fabric collection. It's just dreamy. See the blue with the pink flower and little white polka-dots? It is my favorite. I also love a pieced border.
My self-imposed, fabric lockdown for the year is a bit challenging at times. I know that fabric lines don't last long. Purchasing a charm pack gave me enough fabric and hardly any fabric left over. I am pleased to be working my way through my stash. On another note, do any of you know what this little cage is for? It came from a flea market and the top slides up a metal handle. I thought at first it was a bug catcher, but the bars are set too far apart for that. This one has me stumped!
