One Happy MIL

My mother-in-law's birthday is today. She had mentioned a while ago that she wanted
something to cover the top of a very worn table to in her living room. I took that as a hint.
I sketched a pattern that would be simple yet elegant and then off to AST I went and chose three fabrics from the luscious Gypsy Princess line by Hoffman Fabrics, sewed like crazy, and voila, here is my mother-in-law's new table topper!

I gave it to her on Sunday because, well, I could not wait for her to see it!

This was my first attempt at applique. I chose to do circles, why?
Actually, they are yoyos and I don't think they were very easy.
Some of them are a bit wonky, but that's alright- she loved it anyway.

See? One happy MIL with her new table quilt.

I love making people happy.
