Here is my Friday finish. The pattern for this table topper is "Grandma's Attic" by This & That and I used a charm pack of Chelsea Boutique by Moda.
The browns in this line are so warm and pretty... I was thrilled to find the striped binding fabric locally which saved me an online hunt for something to match. Usually I buy a half yard of binding fabric when I buy a charm pack but I couldn't find it if I did.
The cross stitched sampler fabrics are really fun too. While I was sewing the binding last night I kept flipping the quilt over to admire the top. I'm such a fan of charm packs because I can sample an entire line of fabrics in this 24" x 24" quilt for a minimal investment. I just love that! If this line was still available I'd want to make a bigger project with the benefit of knowing which fabrics are my favorites to highlight and having a head start on what kind of pattern to use too. And, who doesn't have a surface in need of a beautiful table topper?
I picked up some of these Clover Wonder Clips after reading rave reviews and I have to agree that they are a great tool. They have a tight grip for such small clips and you can stitch all around without having to remove them. I plan to use them during block construction to clip like pieces together and when I layout blocks to keep them in row order. Pretty fab I think!
