When I got the RIB pattern, I first made a sketched the pattern and tried several different colors. I didn't like any of the combinations that I had colored.  Then I started actually looking  in my stash for fabrics and my eyes kept coming back to the blues and greens in the Jinny Beyer border print.  I remembered some left over strips from some Hoffman batiks that I had used in a bag.  I desided that I would do a wall hanging, but turns out I like just as well as a table topper.

These are the fabrics I used:

 

 My top before it was quilted:

As a wall hanging:

As a table topper:

 All in all, this project was a lot of fun.  The only problem was I ran out of the navy batik when I liked just one 2 1/2" square.  So I did like the ladies from the 20's and 30's, I just took some of the scraps and pieced them together and then cut my square.  I really have a time finding it after the quilting was finished.
