Here's a brand new book hot off the press: The Big Book of Table Toppers by Martingale. This is truly a BIG book! It has 56 patterns in it. That's a lot of patterns! I'd say the patterns are some of the best of the best. I think many if not all the patterns come from different Martingale designer's books. I'm happy to say that I have a small table topper included in the book that came from my book Little Gems.
Here is my little table topper called Basket Weave. It is made using paper piecing.
This cute runner by Tammy Johnson is called Grandma's Sewing Basket. I like how the ric rac flows thru the runner and forms the basket handles!
This quilt by Cindy Lammon is called Simply Simple. It IS very simple, but I love how she used the large print in the center. The colors are wonderful. It's a great way to use one of those beautiful prints that you just can't bear to cut up!
One last sneak peak- this quilt is called A Pack of Posies is by Vicki Bellino. It has a touch of applique and could also be a good project to use lots of scraps.
As you can just begin to see from these four runners, the projects in this book have a nice range in techniques. The colors and patterns are really inspiring. This book has it all. I'm sure everyone could find many projects that they'd like to make!
Check it out at your local quilt shop or ShopMartingale.com for a hard copy or ebook.
Martingale has graciously offered a free ebook of The Big Book of Table Toppers for a drawing from my blog. Please leave a comment telling how many table runners you've made to be entered in the drawing. Drawing will be held Jan 13.
