Christmas Table Topper

Last Fall, my friends Deb, Lisa, and I started a small round robin. We each made a quilt block (or a quilt center) and took turns adding borders to it. 

This is how my quilt turned out - don't you love these prints in the Holly's Tree Farm fabric line by Moda Fabrics? (My favorite quilt holder is not around much now that school started, so a bench will have to do...).

This square table topper measures 33-1/2". Lisa added the first few borders: blue print with flying geese, cute striped flange, the red and green border and the large striped border. Deb added the large border with pinwheels and corner blocks. I treasure this quilt!

The colors in this picture are sort of funky but I wanted to show you the simple quilting lines, the backing, and the binding up close.

As I quilted I made sure not to touch the flange. It took me a while to finish this project because there was so much going on during the first part of this year. Now that it is ready I can't wait to use Christmas season might come earlier to my house because I need to see these pretty colors on the table!

 Here is Deb's quilt (I will post Lisa's quilt picture as soon as I get it):

I  made the fence border with apples on the corners (yes, the flower print is Liberty of London!), and Lisa added the last border - I love the houses! She printed Deb's last name and appliqued it under the tree. Cool way to personalize and add meaning to the quilt. 

I love the quilting lines and the random print leaves. Actually, I like everything about this wall hanging! 

I hope this post has inspired you to start your own round robin. You don't have to have a lot of people in your quilt group to do one. As for us, we are going to start another one this Fall. Stay tuned!
