Finished Tabletopper

All quilted and bound, the little Christmas tree tabletopper is done.  I chose not to make scalloped edges by following the bottom of the trees and the circle is really not an exact circle but that's okay.  I am going to put it under the quilt on the sewing room bed and that little hump on the edge will flatten down.  Love the way it looks with my old pitcher which I bought at an antique show a long time ago.  It's one of my favorite things.   And I have the Mexican Star all together but the borders-boy, that little bugger was a puzzle to piece and required several sessions of "unsewing".  Turned out great, though.

The topper is wonderful as it is. I like the simple circle edge, a scallop may have detracted from the intricate center. You do such inspiring work, Carol!
