Welcome to The Table Topper Blog Hop! I don't know about you but I love making small projects...there's just something about starting and finishing in a day or two that rejuvenates me. I bought my hanger a couple of years ago and love the quality of it. If you're interested you can click on the logo to find a wide assortment. Also Michelle at Raspberry Rabbits
carries some cute ones.
I love having my hanger in my kitchen window. This is a huge window over my sink and the view of the lake is such a blessing to me.
This is one of the first hanging table toppers I made and is a hand embroidered red work piece that I call The Wonder of Snowflakes. It's also one of my first free motion quilting attempts.
This was an "orphan block" that I decided not to use in a primitive country quilt top so I repurposed it for my hanger and call it Country Hearts. I hand quilted this one.
This is probably my favorite hanging table topper - I don't remember where I got the pattern but it's a combination of embroidery and machine applique that I call Tea in the Garden.
And no kitchen would be complete without A Rooster! This preprinted block was part of a panel that I fussy cut and bordered.
July Stars was another of those orphan blocks that we all have in drawers and can't decided what to do with. I hand quilted this one too.
This piece is wool applique and is done with a hand blanket stitch. It's a very simple piece with a very simple name...Bluebird.
This is one of my latest pieces - O Christmas Tree. The tree is scrappy strips and the decorations are buttons. This is another of the first pieces I practiced free motion quilting on.
Another great use for these hangers is perfect for one of my favorite things - tea towels! I love to applique and embroider tea towels for the seasons and they can simply be hung on this rack to add a bit of whimsey to any corner.
I have a small giveaway for those of you who are interested: I love Sassy by Sandy Gervais for Moda and have more than one charm pack (confession time!) so I'm offering one to you along with a couple of patterns, Quilt Jam by Marcie at Patchalot Patterns (love her stuff!) and Quilted Postcards by Scrap-bags. Oh and a lanyard for your scissors that says "To Quilt is Human, To Finish Divine." Don't you love that! Just leave a comment and I'll draw a name on Monday.
I hope you'll go visit the other blogs who are participating today and I hope to see you here again soon!
