Top of the table topper

Here is the top of the table topper for Young Sprout and Sproutette.  I showed the back in all its “glory” here.

photo(73)I can’t remember where the coffee and teapot print came from but this was all I had of it.  Hopefully this will grace many tea parties for their stuffies and dolls!

Lesson learned:

  • I feel like the blue-gray shades in the centre fabric are fighting with the warm cream calico prairie point fabric.  Perhaps light green or blue points would have been better.

Prairie Point Project

Does this ever happen to you?

It never fails!  My major projects, such as the dino quilt, always seem to generate test and practice pieces.  And they in turn take on a life of their own.

Yes, I could grab some ugly hard to use fabrics, make a quick quilt sandwich and grab assorted precut 3-1/2 inch squares (precut by me using Joan Ford’s Scrap Therapy system) and make sure I can apply Prairie Points.  But I can’t bring myself to do that.

Out comes a novelty fabric and some pretty chintzes and I’m making a table topper for Young Sprout & Co.  They were recently blessed with a child size table and chairs and as soon as it was in their room, they found a receiving blanket to serve as a tablecloth.

Since this is to be an Eid gift, for now I’m just showing the back.  Ignore the birds nest of threads.  This is still a work in progress as I have to deal with that and sew down the prairie points by hand.   Then it will be on to the dino quilt, a much larger project, LOL!
