Happy Birthday Mom!

While in New Mexico last year, I purchased a yard of this Robert Kaufman print that depicts the jewellery that is so popular in the Southwest.


I used this fabric to make some table toppers for my mother’s birthday on March 14.  I kept making projects until I ran out of this print.

First up is a hexagon-shaped table topper made from the Atkinson Designs pattern, Happy Holidays.

The runner at the top of the next picture was from a place mat idea I had seen somewhere on the Internet.  I didn’t like this piece as a place mat so I cut the bottom off of it and added some extra strips to the end and made it into a runner.

The square smaller topper was from a pattern from Designs to Share With You called, It’s Fast, It’s Easy.

The small zipped bag was made from the leftover bits and was assembled in a quilt as you go fashion.
