Two winter table toppers made with jelly roll strips. One quilt moves from light in the center to dark in the outer logs, and the other quilt moves from dark in the center to light in the outer logs. I did this to make full use of all of the jelly roll strips.
The fabric is Christmas Pure and Simply by Nancy Halvorsen for Benartex. Don'tcha cringe when the fabric is cut so crookedly in a jelly roll?
I pieced the binding so it matched the fabric it was next to, and this isn't as difficult as I thought it would be. It did make a fair bump at each corner though.
I used pretty backings to make them reversible in case of a spill or, in the case of the 30s bowtie print, to make them usable all year long.
The quilt below is a gift for our aunt in Ohio. I made her a small 13" fall table quilt years ago, and she wanted a larger one for winter, and this is it.
This backing is the last of my long-coveted Thimbleberries Holiday Homecoming yardage. It's my favorite winter print ever.
Did ya' notice I snuck a bit of a rainbow in there?
