Halloween-themed Table Toppers

Ta - da! I finished them. Well, the 2 for my friends are done. I gave this one to Debi, who is teaching BonnieBlue to ride. The flowers are from Rhett, a 'congrats' gift for getting through my first 3 promotion & tenure (P&T) hurdles: a nearly unanimous vote from my campus faculty, exactly the 2/3 majority needed from my department/school faculty, and a recommendation for P&T from my school director to the college dean. Fingers crossed that the dean promotes and tenures me.

Here's the back. Disappearing nine-patch. It was going to be the front until I thought fussy cutting the witch and bordering it with the cats would be adorable, hence making a more attractive front. It does, don't you think?

I gave this one to my friend, pseudonym Mellie, with whom I work. BonnieBlue's hand is for perspective on size.

 I didn't think far enough ahead to fussy cut the witch in the direction that the bat fabric would run. Or vice-versa. I still like it. Here it is on her table, with the other side up. Simple.

I feel so accomplished.

Now, I've got to bind mine, and sandwich, quilt, and bind my Little Forest wall hanging. Maybe tonight while watching tv....


  1. Those are great! I love the idea for Hallowe'en.

  2. Very cute! What a nice Halloween gift.

  3. Very cute, love the fabric. Where did you buy it?

  4. Looks really great! Love those fabrics! Congrats on your first three hurdles!!!
