I have loved Sedef ‘s first book Quilt Petite and enjoyed making a project. When she told me that she was writing her second book, I couldn’t wait to put my hands on!
What a joy waiting for something good!
My first choice was the Armchair Caddy on the cover but I realized that I don’t have a right sized-couch that fits. darn it!
So this table topper was my second choice and I am glad I changed my plan.
I was inspired by the Scallop Trivet in the book. Sedef showed very clever instruction and it is quite a good size. I am using it as a tea mat than a trivet to be honest.
To make a table topper, I took Sedef’s hoop design and enlarged it by 200% and machine stitched using 28wt dark thread. I added “loving life” on the corner for my girls.
For the scallop edges, I made my own template and trimed the edges roughly using a pair of scissors because I wanted them uneven.
If you want to make one like mine, the finished size is approx. 23” circle and the inner circle is 12”.
oh, that little flower coaster is the Dilly Flower I used Elise’s EPP template.
I think I am going to flip through the pages again for Christmas is getting close.
