Patriotic Table Topper

Amy'sCreativeSide

I love the Bloggers' Quilt Festival! It's so fun to see what everyone is making.


This year, my favorite quilt is actually a table topper. I love this block and thought it would make a fun patriotic table topper. It turned out so much better than I thought would! I made a few mistakes when calculating the border, and I am OK with that. It is a lesson I won't forget any time soon!
I machine quilted this topper. I don't love machine quilting on my machine, but I like to hand quilt even less. There are a variety of fabrics in this quilt, some from my stash and some fat quarters I picked up over the summer. Overall, I am happy with the results, and I definitely learned something in the process.
