Scrappy Table Topper from Left-Overs

Hey all!

I haven't been quilting too much lately with the kids home from school now but I did manage to recently finish this little table topper. The center block is a left-over from when I did Block of the Month at our local guild. The surrounding fabrics are all Kansas Troubles fabrics that I had in my stash and wanted to use up. Some are left-over from a table runner I made as a gift, some from the BOM and some are from a small wall hanging I made for my LQS years ago. I'm not really a Kansas Troubles type of girl anymore so I wanted to use them up in something. I just started with the center block and kept on going with boarders until I ended with a boarder of 2" squares. It fits perfectly on my round kitchen table so that makes me really happy :D

It is machine quilted in feathers waving out from the center of the quilt. I love to quilt like that and find it to be fast and nice looking.

Now to get going on my red and white quilt! The reds are washed and dried I just need to start on the embroideries for the block centers! I am going to use the same embroideries that I used for the redwork fabric postcard swap in the block centers and then piece around them. I'll show more as I progress on it :D
