New table mat

Wow, it's been a week since I last posted? Geez! The kids have been off so that's my excuse. They have "winter break" here in the northeast. Mason kicked it off with strep throat, and we're off to the doctor in a bit to see if Annabelle has it too. I hear it's going around! (Update: No strep! Yaay!)

I started a new table topper the other day. Since putting away my Valentine-themed mat, I felt the need for a new one. I had bought a Lakehouse panel that I thought would be perfect. Plus the Bliss charm packs I have were calling my name.  So I loosely based it on the Schnibbles "Madeline" pattern and came up with this so far...
What's that you say? My center squares are too small so the corners don't go to the end of each block? Yes you're right. I have no idea why that happened, I thought I measured correctly. But we'll just pretend it's supposed to be that way, 'k? Here are some fabrics I'm thinking of for the borders. I'm loving all the pinks and greens.

I know this is a quickie, sorry! Off to play with the kids...glad we got some errands done before more snow falls tonight and tomorrow!

  1. Jen! That's ADORABLE!! Seriously! I love it. I love all the tea cups. So cute. I'm glad that Annabelle doesn't have strep. Crappy way to spent the winter break though. I emailed you a cookie question too. :)

  2. I love this! I love anything with tea cups or tea pots. Can you tell me where you got your panel from? I would love to make a table topper or runner too.

  3. Jen,
