I wanted to make her something special and I know she loves to celebrate. As it is Christmas coming up a table topper might be a great gift and as this star is also called "Star of Bethlehem" this it had to be.
With the old machine I did not want to ruin this beauty so I decided to go back to handstitching. I took out some pink and aqua perle cotton yesterday evening. I stitched in the pink diamonds of the star and around the aqua border.
The sewing machine was still not working today so I used the time while I was waiting for my new tires to hand sew the binding to the back. It looks so nice and neat now and I am really happy how it turned out.
So this little table topper was given her at a surprise birthday party some ladies had arranged. I brought a cake the girls made yesterday and for the hosting lady a little basket full of toffees.
And if you want to read about the "trip along quilt" have a look at the Modern Quilt Guild Ireland blog.
