When we went on the quilt run, there were three of us, Susan, Judy and me. Judy found a cute table topper in one of the shops and asked if there was a pattern. They told her it was a free pattern one of their customers brought in. The topper used a panel and two complimentary fabrics. I knew I had several panel pieces at home and wanted to try some too.
Susan and Judy came over last night and Judy helped with the numbers so I could use my panel to make these flimsies. Any squares will work, even squares of fabric that aren't panel squares.
My squares measured 8" x 8 1/4". I cut the center square 8" square since the width of the blocks were all the same. The length didn't matter. I learned this the hard way and I almost made the same mistake on the next one I made! (Some people are slow. lol)
This one is a variety of foods, salad, dessert, crabs.....
This one was all desserts. I'm not sure what I'm doing with the other two yet. They might go to other family members or I might sell them at the next craft show.
Now to work on finding some backing and batting and get them quilted. A simple stitch in the ditch first to hold things in place and then to figure out something in the blocks. I need to practice my free motion quilting with my new machine and table and I think these are the perfect project.
