Another small project is done


I can check off another project from my list. This little table topper is called Hearts Aplenty and was in danger of becoming a UFO while I tried to decide how to finish it. I actually did machine quilt this one - with a stitch-in-the-ditch between the spokes of the wheel and a blanket stitch around the center. But I left off the stippling recommended on the outer spokes. It definitely needs a better pressing to sharpen the edges too.
If I make this pattern again I will select fabrics with more contrast. Fabric choices also played into my reluctance to finish this because it wasn't quite turning out how I envisioned it.

  1. I love your table topper. I like the fabrics too. They are so delicate looking. Remind me of something my mother had (and I mean that as a compliment).
