Table Topper Blog Hop ~ My Day...

A few weeks ago, 
I hosted a Sew Day at my house.
My friend, Marty, demonstrated the

And I made this...


I also have a table runner in the same fabrics...
un-quilted at the moment, which I 
will share another time.

This is a Linda Lum DeBono design.
It is very versatile by choosing different fabrics.
I chose "Happy Birthday" fabric.
This topper will be used at the 
combined birthday party in June
of my Sew Group.
