    My first and maybe my last. LOL

    I kept trying to get the borders correct as I was running out of scraps for the border. Finally, ended up with a topper that is almost 23". Doesn't have a backing, batting or binding yet. Doesn't seem to lie as flat as it should.

    I really don't know how you do such beautiful toppers, Riversong. And do them so fast.

    Also, the other picture is of a block that was the January Block on HGTV a few years ago. I only made the one block. Wish I had done them all. The name of the BOM was "Let It Snow Man!"

    Your table topper is beautiful! It will flatten out when you quilt it.
    And the applique snowmen are adorable. So cute. I can see
    why you wish you had the other blocks too.
    You are doing great.

    Don't let it be your last. You did a great job.
    As for Riversong's toppers - none can compare. She is the Queen of Table Toppers. BUT, she did give us this wonderful tutorial on making them. I could not do it without her guidance. Here it is:

    Your snowman is too cute.

    It's beautiful! You did a great job & employed lots of different cutting & seaming. A real learning experience.
    I don't know why you picked such an easy (not) pattern for your first one. :^)
