    Coffee Time Table Topper

    This is my first quilt done by following a pattern. I made a small changes to the pattern to make it work with my fabrics. It was fun and frustrating at the same time, but I promissed myself that I will do this because following directions is the hardest part for me. I like to start with a genaral idea and make things up as I go. The pattern is from the book called Kitchen Stichin' by Chris Malone.

    I like your creative approach to quilting. I start with a pattern for inspiration but seldom make it exact.

    It's really cute! What size is it?
    I work the same way...hate following directions! Guess we must be very independent people. I'll do it myself! lol
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    You did a great job. I tend to run astray also, but mine usually never looks that great. Keep on being independent.

    Cut topper. I only use patterns for inspiration -- can't follow directions very well because I am always looking at them through and thinking what I would like to change. Things always come out in the end.

    Great for the kitchen table. Good work!!

    What an adorable topper ! My DD (the coffee addict... LOL!) would FLIP over it! I so admire people who can go without a pattern because I just can't -- even if it's a pattern I've made before. I also want to welcome you to the board... be prepared -- it's addictive. But super fun & there is so much knowledge & fun here!

    The song, "I Did it My Way" could be your theme song...and how cute is the way it turned out? Just darling...making it your way is the best way! IMHO

    I fear, I'm not one for patterns either. At least not somebody else's. I usually see something I like and adapt it to my liking. I LOVE your coffee cups and think your topper came out great. I give you credit for challenging yourself to get over your hurdles! Thanks for sharing.
