    Great to be sewing again!

    I haven't sewed since Thanksgiving due to home remodel projects, Holidays & work schedule. I have been going through serious sewing withdrawl so stayed up late last night to put together an Easter Table Topper and sewed the binding on the ride home from work on the bus tonight. It feels so good to be playing with fabric again!

    Lovely fabrics and composition - I love your work - it is really stunning! Is there a pattern you used for your project? The reason I ask is that after raffle quilts, quilts for family and friends, quite a few gals are looking for smaller pieces to sew. Thank you for the photo as I said, I really enjoyed your fabrics and I like the block and the way you interpreted with fabric it has soooo much movement.

    Thank you. No pattern, I just had some left over Easter Egg triangles from another topper last year that I had put in a basket thinking I would do something with them... didn't want to waste them. Last night I was looking to use up the small pieces and this is what I came up with.

    I'm in Kenmore, north of Seattle...

    Love your little table topper, and the material you used is perfect. It is amazing how we can go into withdrawal if we don't have fabric to play with! Welcome back to SEWLAND!

    Love your topper - The Easter fabric is awesome and the colors are so Easter! I think it's fun to use leftover pieced blocks and gives a head start on a new project.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)
