SQUARE APRIL SHOWERS TOPPER

HERE is my round "April Showers" topper



Here is a square one



I drug this out of my UFO pile yesterday.  I started this square topper and got as far as ironing the applique on and then set it aside.

I did not like the dead space in the corners.

Came up with the idea to put rain drops in there and now I really really like it.


Of course, the pictures is not as sharp as I would like and the colors are not as vibrant but you get the picture (no pun intended)

You just need a 30" square...and some raindrops and you are good to go.

I love the table topper both ways. The raindrops were a great idea to fill the space.

I really like the round one until I saw the raindrops on the square one!... Now I think the round one needs to be about 3 inches wider so you can add rain drops on it also!
