    Another table topper

    I took a course today at my LQS, Kokopelli Quilts, to make this table topper. I wish I had made it with 2 different colors instead of 2 different red fabrics.
    The pattern is from the book Less Than Traditional, Fun Projects By "Charlie" http://quiltingwithcharlie.com/
    Click on Patterns, then click Less Than Tradional add-ons under On-Line store on the Patterns page.

    Beautiful table topper. I agree that if you used 2 clolors it would have shown the detail more. I like it like it is.

    Very, very pretty. You could try another one with different colors, but to me red is Christmas.

    I like it with the reds, but I understand what you are saying about 2 different colors. So - make another! LOL It's really a neat pattern.

    What a beautiful poinsetta!! Great job. So unique and clever. Thank you for sharing.

    It is pretty, but if you are not happy with it maybe you could put some gold thread satin stitch around the petal edges to make it pop, maybe some beads or quilting in the middle? Or green leaves? Maybe a light glittering on the background. I made a table topper at halloween and the black on grey blended together so I took my airbrush and lightened the background.

    I'm bookmarking that one. I love making table toppers. I think it's very pretty with the 2 shades of red but it would be pretty with contrasting colors also.

    This is so beautiful! I love it just the way you have it, but you have all the possibilities you could ever want with this pattern. Thank you so much for taking the time to share this with us.

    Just had to add to my previous post, to point out the obvious, but you can vary colors for all through the seasons, and many type of holidays/parties, etc.
