Table Topper BLOG HOP!! My turn...

Here's the perfect cure to dress up a little corner and make you smile:  Tiny Terrific Table Topper quilts!

Ackfeld Wire makes great little bent wire products, perfect in the sewing room.




I love their 12" x 14" Table Topper, and took a look around my sewing room just to see what might work with it.  I found several little quilts of varying sizes to try. 

Paper-Pieced Lanyard and Nametag:


Uh, cute, but TOO tiny!  Ü



My little "Soldier's Star" which I designed for the AccuQuilt Barn Quilt Design contest last year:


Hmmm, a bit too small...

~~~~~~~~
Pause for Show & Tell:
I was thrilled to learn that a couple of my submissions had made it to AccuQuilt's Top 100 in their 2012 Barn Quilt Design Contest!!  They'll make great little toppers, someday, too!




~~~~~~~~~

OK, back to the teeny quilts! (I know, that was shameless... Ü)

My beginner quilt:


A little Butterfly wall hanging with dimensional curves:
This one is 17" x 17"... Hmmm, almost too big for the frame, but could work.
Mitered Border → TUTORIAL


Little Sunbonnet Susie and Sally quilt I made in order to design a poster:

Sweet.

Bingo Quilt for the online Bingo Party hosted by Tonya, Marcia, Sharon and Snoodles during the month of May.
Machine-bound it in minutes, (→ TUTORIAL ←)
B = Balloon, Tractor, Bug, Snake, Cat
I = Mouse, Bear, Flower, Bus, Thread
N = Frog, Chicken, FREE, Fire, Bug
G = Snail, Dog, Frog, Alligator, Cat
O = Spiderweb, Elephant, Lizard, Cat, Horse 

Then I began thinking of other little quilts I'd already made ...Potholders!  With matching Bloomin' Blossoms Table Runners:


I thought Lesley had a great idea the other day, using "Orphan" blocks - leftover blocks that may never make it into a big quilt:


Leftover block from this →TUTORIAL

And finally, I found a little embroidered square in an old sewing kit that my then-14-year-old daughter had made.  Added borders, quilted it, bound it, PERFECT!

Thanks for hopping by, Friends!

ALSO... Check out Madame Samm's PINBOARD to see the whole collection!
