Quick question: Do princess seams have to go over your apex? Mine are like 2" next to it.
So, here comes the reversible table topper!
|Do the proportions look wrong? The tea pot is a Chinese clay tea pot and fits only 100 ml :) (if you ever want to have a Chinese tea ceremony)|
|The front with the snowball blocks...|
|The back made from fabric strips and little triangles.|
Construction: For the front I used the snowball block pattern from cluckclucksew. These are big blocks that come easily together and lock beautiful. When trimming the blocks I cut off little fabric triangles and I just thought it would be a pity to throw them away, so I used them for the back! I didn't plan on making a reversible table topper, but I think the back looks really pretty as well - I almost like it more than the front ;)
|See, not stiff at all!|
I didn't quilt the table topper, so there is no backing in between the two layers of fabric. This has the advantage that it is not so thick and actually dangles from the table :) If I would have quilted it, the table topper would have been super stiff.

How about you? Are you inspired to make some decorations for your home? Or do you prefer to make garments?
