I'M LOVIN' IT...
My table topper is FINISHED and I am absolutely, positively LOVIN' IT. If you read my previous post, you know that in an attempt to wash off a stain with a slightly damp cloth, I started the fruit colors running onto the white. I just about DIED! I did, however, think fast and quickly stuck the topper into a washer full of cold water, with a Color Catcher and used a tiny bit of quilt soap to wash it. Whew! That was CLOSE! However, the stain is gone...as is the fading of the blue onto the white!
I am so thrilled with the look of this table topper and the fact that I based the design on the teeny bit of free fruit fabric I had on hand. I find that using only what I have on hand really leads to some WONDERFUL creative designs. Additionally, all of the other fabric was free as well...and the batting was left over from a previous quilt. My kind of project!!!
I even love the back of this table topper. And I love the post washing "crinkle" of the quilted piece.
I do still have small amounts of different types of food fabrics and may make this topper again in brighter orange and yellow fruit fabric. It won't match my blue and burgundy kitchen, but it will sure spell SUMMER!
