Fall/Halloween Topper Swap

It's that time of the year again, when our group over at Quilted Table has their fall table topper swap. We sent off our favorite fabrics, and in turn our partner would make up a topper with them for us. Linda over at http://straystitches1.blogspot.com
did this one for me. Don't you just love it. I love the fussy cutting she did and the design was just perfect for the fabrics I sent her. With Halloween being my favorite time of the year, I am on top of the world with this one. In fact, as I told Linda, I almost cried when I opened my package it was "sew"  perfect!!  These fabrics jumped off the shelf at me a couple of years ago, but I hadn't found "just the right" project, to do them justice. Well, what can I say, but that LINDA SURE DID!!  Topped off but with nothing less than fantastic quilting. I could not want, for anything more.  This is probably going to be a year round topper in my house I love it so much!  But wait, she added goodies too!

And how cool are these??? Notecards, tissues, and an adorable ceramic pumpkin that will be hanging in my dining room where the topper proudly lives now!!  Wow-wie am I one lucky girl!
Thanks Linda, your the best. Now check out Linda's blog. She has come great stuff to share with us all!

PS: my topper is in the works and should be done and ready to mail this weekend!! :-)

  1. Wow, It's wonderful. Halloween is my favorite too. I might be tempted to leave that topper out all year myself. She is a very talented lady with great vision.

  3. I'm glad you like it! I'm always nervous making something for someone I don't know, especially when it involves using their fabrics. Thanks for the kind words and for including a link to my blog :)

  6. I can see why you are so delighted with it. It looks great. It really has an Autumn feel with the colours. And of course I have to remember all the decorating that is done for Halloween.
    Congrats to Linda for her lovely work!
