Deck The Halls Blog Hop for Benartex

Wall Hanging/Table Topper tute by www.madebyChrissieD.com

Welcome to Day 1 of the Benartex Deck The Halls Blog Hop.


Disclosure/Disclaimer: 
Sparkle fabric used for making the block along with the non-line specific holiday-themed FQ bundle giveaway is supplied by Benartex for the purposes of the block hop and at no cost to mbCD, all other materials are my own.  In all other respects, this post is for informational purposes only and no payment or commission is received on click-throughs to links shared.

Are you ready for the holidays?  I know I'm not there yet though I'm very excited as my middle son Joe and his partner Katie are coming over from London and my daughter Flicky will be here from Scotland too.  Almost all the family together, though not quite as we'll be missing my eldest son, Jack and my grandson, Oli who'll be celebrating at home in Sevilla. 🎄🎅⛄🎁

When Benartex asked me to make something for this week's Deck The Halls Blog Hop I knew I needed a holiday table topper - I don't have one and I had a design in mind.  To make it I chose the Sparkle fabric collection by Amanda Murphy of Amanda Murphy Design for Benartex - 16 fabrics full of seasonal cheerfulness. All fabrics in the collection are 100% cotton.

 

Here are the fabrics I selected to play work with 😉



HOLIDAY TABLE TOPPER/WALL HANGING TUTE
I started out making the Holiday Table Topper - it's 24" square and I've even lined it with Insul-Bright so I can place hot dishes on it without damaging my table.  Having finished it I love it so much I've changed my mind and I'll be hanging it on my wall for the holiday season - isn't that great, a dual purpose make?!!!

What is Insul-Bright?
Made by The Warm Company, Insul-Bright is a metallised polyester 'batting' that reflects heat or cold back to its source.  You can quilt up to 10" and machine wash/dry with no shrinkage and can be ironed on a polyester setting.  Making it perfect for pan holders, oven gloves, tea cosies, etc.
NB: It can't be used in a microwave.

The tute for my Holiday Table Topper/Wall Hanging is available today here on the Benartex Sew in Love {with Fabric} blog. There are three additional tutes here on my blog that you may find useful when making the project, click on the images to go to them.


 

And here is my finish as both a wall hanging and as a table topper - how would you use it?

The Dresden blades are hand quilted to the quilt top and Insul-Bright to create texture but not through the backing fabric, which I added later, and I've fussy cut the centre circle.  I've pieced with Aurifil and hand quilted with Sashiko thread.

I've pieced the back from remnants of the same fabrics and you can see in the photo below that I've machine stitched in the ditch through the quilt sandwich around each Dresden blade and the centre circle.

I've used a 2-1/4" double fold, straight grain binding, sewn on with a 3/8" instead of the usual 1/4" seam to create a wider front binding and a narrower back binding.

    I have to say too that your Dresden I think may be my favorite one to date. The way you've used this fabric is just beautiful. The Dresden has always been one of my favorites anyway, but yours is wonderful. I love how you used the InsulBrite inside to allow use of holding hot dishes on your table as well. Very smart idea. I love using InsulBrite for oven mitts and hot pads. It works great.

And I have to say, this pattern, in this fabric, just screams to be sitting on my daughter's kitchen table!!

    Last year I gave our youngest grandson an I Spy quilt for his bunk bed. I used the EPP method to sew the hexies and triangles together. There were 330 pictures of things. I stitched part of it when we were visiting them the previous summer, and he put one row in order for me. We visited again this past fall, and I enjoyed seeing it on his bed.
