    WOW! That is really pretty, where did you get the pattern?

    Quilt or table topper it will be beautiful but I'm not sure how to answer your questions.

    Really pretty table topper. I would do the "birth" thing turn it right side out & top stitch around it.

    You can also "birth" it by doing the backing in 2 pieces. Cut an oversize backing. Seam it down the middle with an opening for turning. Sew the sandwich all the way around, turn it right side out, then whip stitch the opening closed.

    It's beautiful. I so want to make a star spin, but haven't been able to find the pattern.

    Pattern is Crazy Eight Strip Teaser a Table Topper by "The 3/4 Crazies" and can be purchased from Jae's Attic in Lake Havasu City AZ (at least that's what's on the pattern). Check out the tute here by Roulen; hers is beautiful and very similar.

    Thank you so much everyone!!! I really hesitate posting my work because of the incredible talent here; you've given my confidence a real boost!!

    very, strikingly pretty
    l would leave as a table topper
    I would also bind it, and if you do not want to draw from center colors, (I agree with this thought) then you can make your binding from the same fabric as the background fabric.

    It is very pretty where did you get the pattern? Is there a tutorial for this design I would love to try it as a table topper but looks difficult.

    Beautiful topper, that's how I'd leave it, so it will be displayed in full on a table.

    Beautiful colors and so perfect! I'd finish it for where it would be visible most often. Reminds me of raspberries!
