Holly Wreath Table Topper


Pieced background blocks from the stash of creamy background prints, rather than put them away after moving to Bordertown from Kadina, but got carried away. Started in June 2004, along with three other projects, and borders were added before the appliqué was started.

The holly was fused on in October 2004 after cutting out some of the shapes a the Hi-fibre Retreats, and added the table topper to the UFO pile for a couple of years.

In November 2006 the wadding and backing were cut out, and machine appliquilted and bound on the 9th and 10th December 2006, with a tiny bit of hand quilting done over the next few days.

Only one more of the four projects started on July 22, 2004 to be completed. Maybe next year.

Machine pieced, machine and hand quilted, Applique fused onto background

and stitched on during machine quilting, hence Appliquilt.

33.5 inches square (85cm) All cotton fabric, cotton wadding
