I am loving this bundle!  I am smitten with this color combo.  I wanted to recreate a block I used in a table runner I made a while back - but use just one block.   So I resized the block and changed up the star a little bit to make it a 30" block, and I love how it turned out!  So instead of a table runner, I made this fun table topper. 


I really wanted to showcase those lovely prints in this bundle - so that's why I decided to make such a large block.  The pink and aqua together make me happy - plus the dash of red in the prints and the binding I picked is just perfect!

30" x 30"


This is a super quick project, and you could definitely get this done in a day.  I quilted this on my domestic machine with simple loopy-loops.  I think that's my go-to pattern for quilting.  It seems to really work well with a lot of my projects. 


Let's not forget about the backing - I am swooning over this pink dot with flowers! It is the perfect backing for this topper!

Alright, let's get started!
