My Batik Beauty Table Topper is done. I can tell you that I spent way more time preparing to sew this than the actual sewing time. It was so quick.
The paper piecing took the longest to sew, but I can tell you that ripping off the paper took twice as long. I'm serious. I know exactly how long it took because I ripped and picked it off while I watched a couple of movies. Next time I make a beauty, I've got to find a way to print the paper piecing part of the pattern on the thinner scrap pad paper that Karen recommends from the dollar store. I don't know if that thin paper will run through a photocopier.
I'm very pleased with the black background. Doesn't it show off the beautiful batik fabrics. My next decision is what do I bind it with. I must go look at Karen's beauties for suggestions.
I haven't decided if I will machine quilt it here or wait until I get home. Depends on the weather.
A Small Finish
