I just can't pass up a good sale. For the last 20 days Burgundy Buttons had a "Christmas In July" Sale! Picked up this unique fabric by Ty Pennington "Impressions". Not only am I a sucker for sales... but Birds & Sales... Count me in !
Threw together this cute little topper as a gift for my daughter-in-law and friend, Deanna. Another sucker for birds (and sales) !!
I fell in love with the focus fabric and the coordinating pieces fell into place. Aren't those birds sweet ?
The design was "as you go" -- but after sewing "Keyholes" by Anka's Treasures I was familiar with how to sew around a center block -- it was fun to re-familiarize myself with the process (and special thanks to DH for idea bouncing... fabric juggles).
It came together pretty well -- I only wish I had cut the border a bit wider.
Next up, choosing the backing fabric. Although the white/gray flowers match perfectly, I'm leaning toward the batik as the color is just perfect for fall -- and you can flip the top and use it longer in the season.
Need to quilt it, bind it and gift it for Saturday night!
Wish me luck !
Thanks for stopping by & have a wonderful week!
