Goodbye, New Friend

I have just listed this quilted topper on eBay. How could I? After being initially gripped with the burning desire to make one, I did. After I sewed the binding down by hand this AM (while listening to my youngest children read me their stories for the day aloud and stopping to grade the math lessons completed for the day) I realized I didn't really have a suitable place for it. It's a little too wide to put on my kitchen table. Mutiny would ensue if I tried to put in on the kitchen island. That's a place for WORK, not beauty, I'm told.

In my non-interior-decorator's mind, I think this would be lovely on a round table (which we don't have) with a flower arrangement or candle on the center square (which, for potential bidders is a 6" square, LOL).

Back down to the sewing/school room for me, where I have more hand work awaiting as well as some school work to grade. The excitement just never ends around here.

Wandered over here somehow...I am a mom of 7 and a quilter/crafter/painter...loved your site and will be back to visit.

You have beautiful work.

Very cute Joan, it will be hard to say goodbye to the table topper I'm sure.

It looks wonderful! Is this a commercial pattern? Can you share your ebay ID or the item number for the tabletopper?

Well there you go! You have two interested parties already. Sorry you have no place for it after your excitement to make it. I have mine on a round table and it is perfect for that!
