This is a table topper from a Fons & Porter magazine.  I have always wanted to try this one. This was my first try at irregular shapes.  I did more ripping making this than I have done in probably a year all put together.  Once the top was done, it didn't lie quite flat on the table.  However, with some serious pressing, creative pinning, and the use of fusible fleece batting, I managed to get it to lie flat and look pretty good.  I really, really like it.   It'll be a while before I try this one again, however.

Great job. Was this paper piecing? I could so see this done in oranges and yellows. Love it!

Could you tell me what Fons and Porter magazine this beautiful piece came from? I have several years of the on-line editions, so hopefully I have it.

Hi greenmonstr,

Can you tell us what issue of Love of Quilting we can find this table topper?

This was in Easy Quilts Fall 2007.  Interestingly, the one in the magazine was done in Halloween colors, orange and black and yellow!  It was not paper piecing.  They have outlines of templates to make but I had ordered the template set from them.  Thank you everyone for your kind words!

beautiful, looks like it has some of the ovarian cancer fabric in it.  I have done two quilts with the ovarian fabrics  one for  each of my grand daughters.  My sister and I both have been fighting OVCA.
