Christmastide in FONS & PORTER’S EASY QUILTS (Winter 2013)

EQ130037

Hello Friends, I have been waiting for my Christmastide table topper, featured in Fons & Porter’s Easy Quilts Winter 2013, to return to me from the editor.  Christmastide will be my second last Christmas project I am sharing with you for 2013.

This table topper uses the concept of adding fabrics to a single block to make a full quilt, making the block the focus of one’s visual attention.

The fabrics I used for the project are from RJR‘s Claridge Manor.  The elegant foliage and berry print fabrics are my favorites.
