This is a wonderful tabletopper made by a quilting pal, that I quilted. The brown/gold/cream Autumn color batiks are so luscious, unfortunately they don't show up as beautiful as they are in person! I love the pattern! She had such a clever idea -- the snowball alternating blocks were too plain, so she appliqued the half-squares and four-patches smack in the middle, which added lots of interest.
And I was able to get the gifts quilt finished, and I think it's so cute! Love the colors, so fresh and modern. It's going to be tough deciding who gets which Christmas quilt. Hmmmmm, gotta check the list, ho ho ho! Edited to add that this is a Kate Spain "Flurry" pattern. It's easy to make, and comes together very nicely -- when you glance at the directions occasionally. I had lots of bits left over, but better than not enough :-D B
