    This is the tabletop that we worked on at our local guild workshop. I purchased all sizes of the amazing rulers and templates. I can see myself doing a lot of fun things with them. After buying all of the rulers, templates, batting, patterns and books that she had to offer, I have determined that this is the most expensive tabletop ever!!!

    You can make it scrappy too. Or do a 4 Patch in the middle instead of all one fabric. Really fun to play with.

    We actually finished it in class. She was firm about that. She doesn't want anyone going home with UFOs!

    I have some of those blocks made without any boughter tools! I just made my own circle pattern. Took a class on the whole thing though. Have enough cut to make a quilt. Did you use any kind of batting? I used a layer of flannel between the fabrics. No batting though. Yours is very pretty.

    I used the Hobbs Thermore that they recommend. Two bags of that was also part of my purchase. Just didn't make the pictures! It is very thin and uniform in thickness. It works very well. If you don't want to buy that, flannel would work as well. Just make sure that you wash it several times first.

    That is very true! You can use any scraps from your stash. And I can make them all look different.
