                                     Bountiful Table Toppers Graphic

This month has been a continuation of last month which means getting even one project done is a success.

                                          We got our new box of fabrics from Island Batik

                                                    All I can say is YUMMY!!!!

                       For my Bountiful Table Topper I chose yellows, browns and greens.
                       From my Island Batik Bountiful Basket of fabrics!!

                                      This is what I came up with!  Which doesn't have a name.

Talking about racking one's brain....oh my gosh.  I have fretted, I have worried and even tried different things but nothing I did worked out or made my heart sing......until

                                      I certainly didn't want to waste any of my gorgeous fabics.


As you can see, I finally came up with something that I felt was worthwhile and it is now sitting on the bar in my kitchen.  Just matches perfectly.  My husband just called from the kitchen and said how pretty he thought it was.... (singing heart).

This topper measures  18 1/2" x 28", just perfect for the bar.

I used my Accuquilt Go cutter with the FUN FLOWER DIE # 55334 and the
 ROUND FLOWER # 55007 (for the center of the flower).

Two 1/4 yards fabric for the circles and the flowers, and 3 - 2  1/2  strips from selvage for the binding.

The blanket stitch was used to edge the applique and wonderful Heat N Bond for my fabric adhesive.

Now I am ready for cooler weather, what about you?

I noticed that a few other ambassadors posted their runners today.....

here are a few others

There will be more.......but these are the ones I know of.

Very interesting design and certainly works well with these yummy fabrics. Great job. Of course, I hope you one day turn it into a pattern.

Great job, Barb. That is a lot of applique!

Looking at the runners helped me! My group for swapping mini-quilts decided to do table runners for October, and I wasn't feeling it. But I have some ideas now. Yours is beautiful!

Barb, your topper is a Fall delight! I love batiks too. You've come up with a great design. And when a man notices, then you've obviously done good!

Your design reminds me of The Alhambra. The flowerettes, and lovely curves.
