    A new table centerpiece

    Iíve had this pattern for quite a while- finally took the time to make one. Iím so glad I did. I really enjoyed the process and love how it turned out. I can see myself making many more of these.

    Really love this! It has a stain glass feel, which appeals to me. It looks perfect! Great job!

    Great eye for color. It is hard to believe this was your first as it looks perfectly put together. Your table is ready for spring.

    I was ( gifted) the pattern some time ago- finally decided to make it. I really enjoyed making it and love the way it came out. I will be making more. It took me about 3 hours- including choosing fabrics.

    I have been trying to figure out what I want to put in the center of a round table that I have and nothing has appealed to me until now! I love your colors and this specific design! I just bought it at Annie's! Your piece is so lovely. Thank you for sharing. Any tips that would be helpful along the way?
    Enjoy your day,

    dont ( Over think) your fabric selections- I had put it aside many times because I was unable to choose fabrics. When I finally decided I was going to make it- just to see how it worked out I didnít think about colors- being ( cohesive) I just chose some scraps big enough to fit the template. I did change one fabric after I fused all 8- there was one red I didnít like & I retraced that one onto fusible and grabbed a different fabric.
    Im generally terrible about following a pattern/ directions but this time I did- followed step by step. I used the Pellon 987 fusible fleece the pattern recommended ( they start with Bosal but then offer 2-3 different options. I just happened to have the Pellon on hand.
    I used my printer and made a copy of the templates, rough cut them out, glued them to cardboard ( I use those white thin cardboards you get in shirts- clothing) then cut them out - 2 copies of the big leaf- one with the corner cut. That way I have the templates for tracing as often as I want to make another one.

    I am so so happy with the way it turned out- choosing fabrics/ colors I truly didnít think would go together. My thought process to choosingó well, purple and orange are ok together- need some yellow, they are leaves, need a green, oh...I really kind of like these 2 teal( ish) printed Batiks, they have plenty of my colors....
    like I said to begin with- Donít Over think it. I really think the success is in the spontaneity.
    I look forward to seeing yours.

    It turned out lovely. I have this pattern, too, but I have never made one. Your account of your experience is encouraging, so hopefully I will attempt one soon.
