Slow Sunday Stitching -- Short & Sweet is a Flimsy Table Topper!!!

I'm excited that all of the applique is now complete on this sweet little table topper.  This table topper pattern is from Kim Diehl.  It is called Short & Sweet.  It is in her book Simple Charm.  I LOVE the colors!  I think I know how I am going to longarm quilt it (I think...)


I finished it this week while subbing for the art teacher.  They were learning how to knit.  I participated in the class.  I don't think I've knit anything since I was about 10 or 12 years old.  But it all came back...40 years later.  I did learn that I'm a "thrower" when it comes to my style of knitting.  It may also be called English vs. Continental style of knitting.  It's not really my thing, but it was a fun class.  My stitches are a little rusty, but I am pretty sure I could get them really nice and pretty with a little practice.  


I'm linking up at Kathy's Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching.

  4. I love Kim Diehl's use of applique with piecing! Your table topper turned out great! I knit continental as my mom was from Europe. I am not sure the advantages of either but I think you always prefer what you first learned.

  6. OHIO is gorgeous, btw. And this table topper is too. Knitting is a fantastic hobby too and good for in front of the t.v. I like that these things are being taught in school.
