This topper is fun ! ! ! !
Sure happy that I decided to go along with Malka's tutorial
to buy the kit from MarmaladeFabrics.
We all know that the cut pieces on the design wall look bigger
than what all these pieces look like when they're sewn together.
Here's a pic of my topper in just the beginning stages of construction.
The corner pieces at the bottom are a bit wider than
the partially sewn top sections.
It always amazes me how much of a size difference there is
between the original layout on my design wall
and the final project.
Hey, the top is finished and ready for batt and quilting ! ! ! !
I tried my darnedest to keep the centers of each kaleidoscope as much on point as possible.
I'm happy with them
. . . . . . it's a table topper, after all.
Here's the very center.
And, I know we all want to see the back side
of a piece
so - - - - - - - -
Malka suggested that the pinwheel sections be pressed in one direction.
The bulk at the very centers is very manageable and lays flat.
I continued using this construction method when sewing the sections together and find that the centers will be really flat when I sit down to quilt this baby.
I'm so pleased with this table topper project! ! !

We've all been asking,
"When is Spring coming? We're tired of this cold weather."
Well, it's here in mid-MO.
Yesterday temp was 90+ degrees F ! ! ! ! !
Today it's a bit milder - - - at 80+ ! ! !
Boy, oh, boy, I don't want to have to turn on the AC.
Do you all sign up for Malka's and MarmaladeFabric's
I think there's still time.
