Patriotic Table Topper {June IBA Finish}

Hip hip hooray -- my June Island Batik ambassador project is finished just in time for the Fourth of July next week!

I used a red IB fabric to make bias binding for this table topper. Curved bindings require bias bindings without a doubt! I added this binding completely by machine for stability; I'm anticipating this topper being washed on a regular basis.

Now I have not only used a new technique (hooray!) I've also made something fun, functional, and festive for my patio table!

As an Island Batik Ambassador, I am provided with samples of various lines of Island Batik fabrics to use and share with you!

Batting: scraps

  1. This turned out wonderful! You do a really nice job of using the batik fabrics, in that not so usual "batik way".

  2. I love it! Very happy piece, and the red binding is the perfect finishing touch :)

  3. What a fun piece! I love the way it turned out and I think you will enjoy using it all summer.

  4. It's beautiful. It looks great on the table.

  5. It's almost too pretty to use just to top a table. Congrats on another beautiful finish.

  6. Wow, it looks amazing!!!!!! And it really looks great on your table. I love the stripey dresdens and the motion that creates. Really beautiful!

  7. What a lovely quilt! I love the idea of a quilt for a patio table. I have (foolishly?) chosen a patriotic theme for my July project... which I haven't started yet. :-P
