At the beginning of May, I shared a photo of another older stash fabric pull that I was hoping to turn into something by the end of the month. Well, one of my readers suggested place mats and another suggested a tablecloth for maybe outdoors. That got me thinking...
My outdoor table could really use a square table topper for the summer. (Due to the downpour outside, I have to share indoor photos.) I came up with a simple block that was quick to sew. Unfortunately, in my efforts to use up old fabrics, I didn't get enough contrast in the blocks. But to use outside for a season or two, it will be just fine!
I even made me up a quick matching napkin holder.
I cobbled it together with some fusible fleece, a bit of top stitching and a few buttons.
It was really just an excuse to use up more of this olive fabric....I think I still have a couple yards left!
A bit disappointed with this finish but it will still get lots of use! The good news is I won't be upset when the margaritas and salsa get spilled.
This finish does fulfill my One Monthly Goal for May. A big thanks to Heidi at Red Letter Quilts for hosting the event!
