I spend so much time making things to sell or give to people that I never have the time to make anything for myself. The topper I have on my coffee table was one of the very first attempts I did at making a patchwork topper. So this one is for me.
It measures approximately 54" x 54"
Some of the cotton fabrics were very floppy and flimsy so I ironed on interfacing to make them easier to work with.
I'm really pleased with how it turned out and love the cool colours.
When I get some more time I'd like to make some matching coasters and also a runner for my dining table to match this one. At the moment it's in the shop where I sell my runners. My friend who runs the shop asked if I'd leave it there for a while. I told her only on the condition that she didn't sell it no matter what the price was. I'm too tired to make another one right now.
The following day someone wanted to buy it but she told them it wasn't for sale.
I'm going to be bringing it home in a couple of days time. Maybe then I'll make the coasters.
