Another Finish and a Prize!

I think it was two and a half years ago that I went with a group of friends to a Girl's Day Out with Leanne Beasley, Rosalie Quinlan and Melly Hurlston. This was the kit I started working on during the day. The embroidery has been finished for over two years and has been living in a drawer. I pulled it out last week and decided to turn it into a table topper instead of the doily I had originally planned. I'm pleased with how it turned out.
Doesn't it look gorgeous with these flowers! I planned to put this into my gift drawer but now I'm not too sure!
Elizabeth from Such a Sew and Sew had a "Week of Giveaways" in January and I was lucky enough to win a kit to make this dotty quilt! Everything is there including, borders, backing and binding. There are 112 different spotty fabrics! This one will be a bit of a challenge with all those curves!
Thank you Elizabeth. I'm sure I'll have fun putting this together.

The table topper is cute.
Mark matches on the curves before sewing. It will be very easy to do.

Gorgeous topper, so pretty. I would have to keep it if I had made it, especially seeing how perfectly it goes with the flowers.
