I hope you've had a good week. I've been busy making table toppers.
My father-in-law needed one for his kitchen table and i thought the carpenters star filled the circular space just nicely. Also, Jack was a pattern maker before he retired so this was very apt!
This is the second topper, this time with a cream background.
I quilted all over feathers for the background.
Both toppers measure 28" across.
If you would like to make a carpenter star then you can find a great pattern here.
I halved the size of the HSTs then squared them to 3" to make my topper.
Before I go, can I just let you know that voting is open at the Quilt Blogger's Festival.
You can vote for my butterfly quilt here. It is in the baby category and is #3.
You can vote for my Fishy wall hanging here. It is in the Wall hanging category and is #5.
You can vote for one quilt in each category and I would love it if you voted for mine. There are some really fabulous entries this year and I've had difficulty choosing my favourites in several categories. So many beautiful quilts!!
See you all next time.
