Kaleidoscope Table Topper

You've read all the hoop-la going 'round blogland.  
WHY NOT SEW?  is handing us opportunity of win some of Denyse Schmidt's fabric.
It's a Charm Pack that'll go pretty good in my new re-stashing program! ! !  
So, I think I should warn you I just may win this one! ! !    
But go ahead take a peek at WHY NOT SEW?

Laundered the Kaleidoscope Table Topper

The reverse really shows the quilting
good thing I used Teal colored thread
so now I can use either side.

Look how rippled it is, isn't this the most fun!

Here's what Deb and I accomplished on our Sew Day.
Used up ALL OUR GO! CUT 6.5" TUMBLERs ! ! ! 
There were only two tumbler pieces remaining when we finished the afternoon.
Those we tossed ala Eleanor Burns.

These two are awaiting to be sandwiched, then free-motion? quilted.  
These will be gifted to some one  .  .  .  .  
Two more runners/toppers need borders then we worry about quilting.

All-in-all we ended up with four table toppers, not too bad for an afternoon's fun. 


I'm enjoying the eMags from Interweave 
that I've download onto my NookColor.  
I was able to purchase a 75 minute demo by Lyric Kinard on surface embellishment for a dime
and a 45 minute demo on dyeing by Malka Dubrawski for another dime.  
That's two hours of demos for twenty cents.  Best bargain I've gotten in ages.
Lots of inspiration! ! ! ! 



  1. your table topper looks amazing all crinkled up after washing. I love that look. it's so warm and real!

  2. Gerry, seeing what you have done makes me want to sew! You need to come to SC and hang out...maybe I can learn just by being near you since I always end up disappointed when I attempt sewing.
    The table top looks fantastic! You did such a great job on it.
    Hope you day is a good one[85 and sunny here today].

  3. You and #2 can sure turn out the projects. All look fab. Great quilting.

  4. Your table topper is beautiful. I love the circular quilting you did!

  5. Not bad girlfriend - not bad at all - in fact, you 'did good'. Love the quilting. Can't visit now - got charm packs to win.

    Hugs - Marie

    Sending you lots of hugs and love too my friend.

  8. Hi Gerry...I wish I knew more about quilting..but I do have new neighbor is a "fabric Artist" . I assume that is the same thing as a quilter...and I feel I will be learning a little more about this wonderful art in the future.

    Stay well,


  9. What wonderful quilting -- makes me wish I could quilt. But instead I cross-stitch and KNIT! Speaking of knitting, please email me the info on the Interweave downloads. I just got a tablet and downloaded Nook software, so I need to expand my horizons! I miss the Panera group!
