Twister Table Toppers

Hi all!

Are you ready for Christmas yet?  Not me!  LOL

These are two Christmas table toppers that I made for incentive draws for my fitness classes.  Every time they cam to class in the month of December they got their name in a draw to win one of these.

They are from the Twister pattern by Designs to Share with You.  They work up from 4 fat quarters plus backing and binding so they work up from a fairly small amount of fabric which is nice.

They are two slightly different versions of the same pattern.  the only thing that I would change is the binding.  For my next one I might consider doing the inside out method so that a binding isn't necessary.  The binding certainly looks nice yes; but, all those inside and outside corners WOW!!  If you're not good at corners on binding you will be after you finish this project lol!

I hope that you can see the quilting.  I machine quilted them in a feather that radiates out from the center into each point using a gold rayon thread.  I love the way that it looks :)

how nice... I did the birthing method for my tree skirt because I had some reversed corners. I am not good with binding as it is and I had no clue how to do the corners.
