On our annual quilting retreat last week, I decided to make the table topper mystery quilt. I should know better. I really like to put a project on my design wall as it progress, sometimes making changes to the fabric I’ve chosen.
At the retreat, I used a focus fabric that was directional – mistake. When I started to put the project together it was a mess. So I stopped what I was doing, came home and re-cut using a new focus fabric. Everything is strip pieced so it goes together quite easily.
I liked the result so much that I ended up making two! I think that the second table topper will be one of my pieces in the craft boutique at our guild’s quilt show next year.
Lesson learned.There is always time to quilt!
