Mary, Mary Quite Contrary, How Does Your Garden Grow?

It' been a while since I have posted about one of my quilt projects. I've been spending what spare time I have working on projects, but since we have been in "production mode" at Texas Tea&Travel Magazine putting together the final touches on the Summer Issue. 

In January I found a piece of Robyn Pandolph fabric that one of my mom's quilt guild friends gave me last year when I was starting my first round robin quilt.  It was such a beautiful yellow fabric with pink roses, and I'm not even a fan of yellow! I remembered that I had a partial panel of Mary's Flower Garden by Quiltsmart and along with a few leftover pieces of complimenting fabrics, I made this quick and easy table topper. 

Like table runners, table toppers (mostly square) are a perfect compliment to a table for a special event or (my favorite) for an Afternoon Tea Party. 

I haven't decided how I am going to finish it, but not having to do Y-seams on the center flowers definitely made me change my mind about walking away from this hexagon-themed project.

If you've been looking for a fun quick project, this is a great one. The table topper is approximately 40-inches square. Its perfect for a baby blanket too!!

Until our next cup of tea ...
