Day 5 of the Table Topper Blog Hop

Well, I hope you have enjoyed all the toppers that have been shown so far...I know I have.  There are several I've put on my list to make...lol!
This is my first topper.  My first Ackfeldwire stand (love it!).  I've always wanted to make a hst quilt & for now this will have to do...lol!  I had left over triangles from my Charming Stars quilt & I just couldn't throw them away.  Instead I went ahead & sewed them together...and BAM!...mini table topper!  And now looking at this picture, I should have added another column and 2 rows.  I was just so darn excited making it, I didn't make the right size for my stand.  Well, I have several squares left so I just might do a 'do over'.  If I do, y'all will be the first to know.

Listed below are the other ladies showing off their toppers today so be sure to check them out:
Marlene
Charlotte
Leslie
Darlene
Jane
Michelle (that's me!)
Cherry
And to keep with the 'mini' theme, GIVEAWAY...a mini charm pack (these are too cute!)...just leave me a comment.  I'll draw on the 26th.

Thanks to the fabulous Ms. Samm for hosting such a fun event.  The fun continues next Monday through Wednesday.  You can click here to see who's next.

Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. I love those mini charms, so cute. I like your tabletopper just as it is, it's perfect. I think table toppers are the way to go. If I made full sized quilts in all the designs I'd like, I'd never make them all. At this size I might have a fighting chance. ;-> Toni Anne

  30. Even though your mini came out a bit too small for the frame, it still looks great. Who says it had to fit inside exactly? Don't worry I won't report you to the Quilt Police! Ha! Just make a totally different topper if you like it to fit the space.

  82. Your table topper is darling! What a good idea to make a mini quilt instead of a regular-sized quilt of something you want to have! I have so many things on my bucket list, I may just have to make mini quilts for all of them instead of full-sized quilts or I'll never get them all done! :) Thanks for the opportunity to win such a great giveaway!!!
