Here is my August table topper. Yes, I know it is October but I am a little behind. I am working on November’s table topper so I can quilt the two together. Then I will be done with my yearlong table topper project. Yeh!! I have had fun with this project – using fabric from my stash and trying new techniques. For August, I started with a watermelon panel and coordinating fabric (green, yellow and white). For the center pinwheels, I used strip piecing with phone book paper for my foundation for piecing. I think it gives the pinwheels a modern look since the watermelons are cut into small strips. Then for one of the borders, I used the modern piecing technique of slicing the fabric and then inserting by alternating the colors (white with the watermelon fabric). It was a fun project and it reminds me of a picnic tablecloth.
