Throughout the year I saved scraps from each of my projects and I had quite the box full! In the process of making this challenge, I also crossed a quilt off my bucket list. I have always wanted to make a New York Beauty quilt and now I can say that I have. In the past I hadn't been a big fan of paper piecing, but I'm starting to really get into. This is the third table topper I have paper pieced recently and I'm so happy with all three of them.
My original intent was to make a traditional Christmas themed topper, but I didn't think I had enough reds, greens and golds. But I had plenty of Springy fabrics which worked out better in the long run.
Also I quilted this table topper on my domestic sewing machine - which may sound somewhat odd. I have a computerized longarm that I do all my quilting on, so I'm a complete BEGINNER at quilting on a sewing machine but I am doing better. Practice is good! I used Warm 80/20 from The Warm Company for the batting and since it is a low-loft batting it worked great.
And the best part - I already have a Spring table topper ready for when the Winter décor gets put away!
