A table topper for my sister!

I just realized that I never blogged about the table topper I made for my sister for her 50th birthday.  She has her kitchen all remodeled so we waited for that to be finished before we chose colours.  Eva has a lovely old round solid table in her dining room so a round topper was in order :-).

This pattern is from one of Cheryl Phillips' books using one of her rulers.  Eva picked the focus fabric on the outside which matches her colours very nicely.  I once found that fabric at Value Village and picked it up for the rich look of the colours.  I found the coordinating colours at Cherished Pieces in Tillsonburg ON.  Here are some pictures of the finished topper and closeups of the quilting and the backing.
