Quick Finish!!!!

My daughter, Kristie and her family were visiting on Sunday and she saw my “Seasons” tablecloth and she fell in love with it. She immediately expressed an interest in having one for her table, too. I had one charm pack of “Democracy” and she loved it. So, I told her she could have “Seasons” or I’d make “Democracy” for her. She said she wanted one that I’d made especially for her and asked for “Democracy”. So, yesterday afternoon,while I was killing time, I whipped up the four patches, sewed some of the rows and then while I was at a Moda University class at the quilt store I picked up border, binding and backing fabric. Then this morning I sewed the borders on and hopefully later this week I’ll quilt it, bind it and she can enjoy it on her table.

I’m hooked on these little tablecloths so I have big plans – yeah right! I’d love to make a different one for every month of the year – yes one for my daughter, as well. Now, will I really do it? That remains to be seen! LOL


HMMM - today is the first day of Spring so I must search for fabric to make two with a Spring theme.

Thanks for the photos, now I can see and admire them clearly.
WOW ! WOW ! I understand your daughter these cuties are really eye catchers ! Did you use a special pattern ? (I'd like to make one, and that Democracy Moda design just made a PANG! in my heart... LOL LOL).
Keep surfing, dear, you're on the right wave !

Hello Darlene! Love the fabulous table toppers! I have a question about your quilting. Do you make your great swirls on a regular home machine or do you have a long arm or mid arm that you use to make them. I know you have the Memory Craft..is that what you use? I love the design!

The Baynes Family said...

OOOOhhh....its fabulous and its all mine!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you...I bet everyone wishes they could be your daughter but only me I'm the lucky one. :o)

One a month is a great idea! The one for Kristie is gorgeous - I'd have also requeste that fabric.

Sweet P said...

Cool tablecloths. If I have more quilting time I would make one a month too.

Vicky said...

Beautiful! What a lucky daughter you have! As fast as you get things together, heck, you could make one a month for ALL of us! (vbg)

Great job, Darlene! You're amazing!

Hugs

I love the diagonals created in the Democracy one, they are both lovely. Lucky daughter!

Are you using 2.5" cut strips for the 4-patches?

KCQuilter said...

Quick finishes are always great---especially when you get such a fantastic result! Love them.

Oh it's on my list of futur projects. So far I have three, two for fall and 1 for halloween. Your "little tablecloths" look lovely. I'm just amazed at how quickly you whip up projects. I think I need to get off the computer! lol Happy quilting!
