a finished table topper

Coming Home table topper - quilted
What a week it's been! My family and I came down with the flu this past week, so we're starting to recover and return back to a normal life. I finished up this little table topper before we all got sick... I knew there was a reason I had to get started on Christmas gifts right away!

I tried a couple of new quilting designs with this quilt. The loopy border and the design in the white squares was something new for me. It's the same as what Camille had done on her quilt; that's why I think it's fun to use a pattern to make something sometimes. I forces me to try something else and see a quilt from someone elses perspective. Then, I can bring some of those elements into some of the quilts that I design.

The backing also uses up all of the left over charms and extra yardage I had from the binding and borders.
