Spring Blush ~ table topper – 33″ / 84cm square
– Whimsical flowers celebrate the arrival of Spring in this decorative piece for the home.
Inspired by vintage linen, this table topper features scalloped borders surrounding flowers with appliqued petals and embroidered centres. An edging of patchwork completes this two toned project. Just 5 fabrics are needed… 4 fabrics chosen in your favourite colour and an off-white fabric to contrast.
– “Spring Blush ~ table topper” features applique, simple embroidery, patchwork borders and a “facing finish binding”. A freezer paper and gluestick method is used for the scalloped borders and petal applique. All instructions are comprehensive with diagrams and an abundance of photographic detail.
