Eight years ago, I bought some sunflower fabric. I originally intended to finish the sunflower blocks of the month that I won at a Guild meeting. The fabric had stripes so I changed my mind and cut out some 60 degree triangle pieces. Then the fabric was put away. When I found the box of ufos in the attic, the partially finished pieces were there.
Out of this pile of fabric, I made:
three table toppers
three place mats
one table runner
two table mats with a fabric addition because the prints were different.
The sunflowers will be cheery in August and later on in the fall. Then I can flip them over as the background is a Christmas print. I was at a local Guild show in Maine and there was a table of fabric for sale. I bought yardage that would make a great table cloth and this was the coordinating fabric.
When I finished, I had one small piece of the sunflower fabric left. It is in the mile a minute bin. I had to piece the last backing, but there is a small amount left over. I will cut it into 2 1/2″ squares and should have enough for a small quilt. These fabrics have been in my stash long enough to count as free fabric. Therefore, this group of table linens was free.
Have a great day and happy quilting.
