little quilt monday~~~sashiko table topper


Little Quilt Monday

I finished the sashiko embroidery that I first showed here.


I chose some Kaffe Fasset fabric from my stash to border the
sashiko stitches.  I decided to make it off centered for a 
fresh, modern look.


The table topper measures 21 X 21 inches right now, but I am
considering adding another border to make it larger.


I don't plan to add any batting, so it will be more like a table cloth
than a quilt when I am finished.


Now it is your turn to link up something to

Little Quilt Monday


1.  This link-up party is for any small project.  For example, mini quilts, doll quilts, baby quilts, place mats, mug rugs, purses,
wall quilts, table runners, etc.

2.  They can be a WIP(work-in-progress) or finished.

3.  If it is something from the past there is no need to write a new blog post, just link the one that you have already written, and please link back to my blog post. 
 I have added
the code to my button if you would like to add that to your blog.

4.   If you are interested, you can add your pictures to my flickr group here, or join my Facebook group here. 

Let's inspire each other!

Thank you for letting me post on your links. I'm sorry that I don't know how to link your blog to mine nor am I able to crop my pictures as I would like. For some reason, the crop feature doesn't work for me.
Best, Sharon

The stitching is so neat and even, such a cool design! I think the border is a great idea =D

Love this! It's turning out beautiful! The embroidery looks awesome, and the surrounding fabric sets it off nicely! Really nice work.
