    I tried to make Roolen's table topper as close to her's as I possibly could...I loved her table topper. Thanks Roolen for the tute!!! I pieced it today and will put it together & quilt it tomorrow. Has anyone else made this? Do you SID with this one?

    Lovely, it's on my project list to do next, a little concerned about the binding tho in the corners. How are you going to do that ?

    I'm a little concerned about the binding, too. I'm just going to start & when I get to a corner do what I always do, but much slower...ha. How would you quilt this?

    On the pattern that I have for this topper it suggests quilting it from point to point. I am thinking from the center out to the points. You did a nice job on yours. I still need to make one!!

    Great job. I have this pattern but haven't tried it yet. Yours turned out great. A friend of mine did it and SID with hers.
    Turned out great. I'll keep yours handy for when I do mine.
    I love your fabrics. :thumbup:

    Have you put the border on yet, how did it work out, I'm really concerned how it will work in the corners.

    I am in the process of putting the binding on now. I'm about 1/2 way finished with hand sewing the back side. I can't think of the name of the tute, but I went to the search & put in binding for inside corners. There was one that showed how and you have to make a tiny snip of a cut at the inside corner. That scared me! But, that allows you to pull that inside corner straight as you sew on your machine. Now when you hand sew the back side of the binding it shows how you make a little pleat that will look like a mitered corner. This has been the hardest part for me. But, I'm working it out. If you look closely at Roolen's picture there's a small white fabric between the actual topper & the binding. I PMed her & she said that it was piping. I decided that I would make it easier on myself and not do the piping. Although, my next one I might try it or add a flange. Post pictures of your topper....I'd love to see it.
