One Valentine table topper
for my niece
done just gotta trim up the threads
found this in the stash while cleaning
so it moved this project to the top of the list
layered pieced batting, backing and top upside down
see those edges not quite long enough?
they are in the seam allowance and
wont affect it at all
I rough cut to make it easier to sew
and pinned it down
here are my rough cutoffs
throw them out you say?
waste not want not and you will see in a minute what I mean
see the batting? yep pieced too
I just try and make sure the seam doesnt fall
in the middle of the topper
and it stays pretty flat
and something new for me
I had bought a ton of this thread from
Connecting Threads during Christmas
it was a dollar a spool
so you know me......I got
look how great it matches my topper!
so wiggly easy quilting
those little scraps?
I sewed them together
and made the back for this mugrug
and since the thread was already in the machine
now just a binding and into the box you go my pretty........
what have you sewn today?
