Finished: table topper

Celebrating a modest sewing finish: reversible topper for the buffet.

Side 1: blue striped

This was the fabric I bought in February because it was my Mom's favorite color.  I used all of the 1/4 yard remnant, then bordered it with a long-stashed (where were you in 1994?  I was at the fabric store!) navy blue twill to make the topper an appropriate size.

Side 2: celestial print

Looking for an idea for the reverse side that would still make use of the navy twill, I found a celestial print within my scrap box.  The way this side is pieced was very much dictated by the size and shape of the scraps I was working with.  I love how the copper/gold touches in the fabric go so well with the color of the wood in the buffet.

Happy that this home decor item got made entirely from stashed fabrics!  Also happy that I didn't go too crazy with fabric choices; this actually complements the dining room, rather than calling attention to itself in a flamboyant way.

Yardage Used: 1/4 + 1/4 + 3/4 = 1 1/4 yds

Feeling accomplished on a Monday.  What are you working on today?
