Some round wedges are totally done!!

I had some time on Sunday and got these 2 round wedge toppers bound-I still have a few more to do so stay tuned for those, LOL

For this one I chose prints that say Christmas but don't scream it, they are also ones that could be out any time of year if that was your color scheme. They were fun to piece and fun to quilt, lots of ruler work on my Nolting longarm. I love how the quilting almost makes it look like pleats in the round. If you click on the pix you will get a closer look at that.

The center circle is appliqued on using the interfacing sewn to the right side of the green and then clip interfacing and turn it, position it and iron it down. Then I chose a tiny blind hem type of applique stitch from my Janome Horizon 7700 to applique it down.
It measures in at 28" just the right size for my table, but I didn't make it for me! All of the round ones are for sale, as are most of what I make :-)
I was so surprised to see I was featured on Freemotion by the River blog today-great way to start the day!! Thanks Connie!




 And a fall wedge topper that measures 36"-it turned out a little bigger than I was hoping but I am sure it will fit someones table!  This was the first one I made and I was trying to scale it down from the original tree skirt size and forgot to take into account that the wedges don't meet right in the middle, LOL Live and learn :-)
The quilting on this was freehand hook swirl, an easy forgiving design that is fun to do and leaves great texture.


This little quilt you might recognize as a free pattern from Connie at Freemotion by the River.Thanks Connie-it was a fun little quilt to make up. This will be donated to our local Neonatal unit.

  1. Oh my goodness - I love the table topper! I know you mocked it up yourself, but did the ruler come with instructions to make the strip sets? I need to make a wedge Christmas tree skirt and I love the pattern yours makes!

  13. those round toppers are amazing, I so could not do that! Love the little quilt, I'm pretty sure it's similar to the pattern I'm just about to start

  14. I love your round toppers! I need something just like that for my square kitchen table. I so dread just a regular table cloth! I think I will be adding one to my "to do " list! I have been planning placemats for each season/holiday, but a topper instead of some is a good idea. Thanks for the inspiration!
