Scrapbook Chickadoodle wins the table topper!!
I will be sending an email for your mailing info!
Welcome to the last day of Madame Samm's, Spring Is In The Air Table Topper Blog Hop!
I want to thank Madame Samm for allowing me to participate, even with my inability to remember things this past couple of months! I almost let this slip by but Samm threw me a life jacket! I truly appreciated the reminder email because I so enjoy participating in all of the things she dreams up for all of us bloggers!
You can go HERE to view all of the table toppers that have already been posted but I highly recommend using the list of links as well and go visit all of these quilters on their blogs! You never know what you will find... might even find a new friend! :)
Would you like to see what I have made for the
Yes??? Well, ok.. if you insist!
I have been in the notion of making this mini quilt for my hubby for a long while and when Madame Samm posted this blog hop I knew it would be the time to get this in a finished state! Our bedroom is decorated in a romantic theme and this fits in perfectly! I put it on the Ackfeldwire Quilt Stand and placed it on the corner of our dresser. Then I called my hubby in to see what I made. Of course, he had to give me a kiss or two or three right then! ha!
I had purchased some fusible batting a while back just to try so I got it out when it came time to put the backing on the quilt. A lot of quilters have raved about fusible batting but I am not sold. I think I prefer regular batting to this. In all honesty I will give it 5 stars on one point.. My mini quilt is really straight and does not do the dog ears dance on the corners. I do like that about it. I might keep some around just for mini quilts. We shall see.
I also found a super use for double edge finished 1/2" wide silk ribbon! It makes for an awesome sleeve for small projects such as this!
This is the batting I used.
As I studied over the finished mini quilt, I see some things I would do differently if I remade another one. The stem on the rose is a little fat and my embroidery needs some fine tuning. I really need some embroidery lessons from a pro! And I might just use regular batting if I were to remake it.. We shall see...
I wanted to show you something that was posted on my blog about 2 years ago. My friend Martha does my cross stitching for me since my eyes will no longer allow me to. This piece was entitled "The Kiss" and it hangs over our bed! Martha does impeccable work!
I am not the only blogger on today's road show for the table topper hop! Please make sure to go and visit these other quilters to see what they have created for today!

For me... I think I am going to give away this mini quilt so that it will spur me to remake it all over again! And I won't let it take me so long to do another one this time around!
Sorry, the stand is not part of the giveaway.
