I recently bought a Layer Cake of Vintage Modern fabric and I LOVE it! The colors are soooo bright and cheerful! I didn't really know what I wanted to do with the fabric but I DID know I wanted whatever I made to be seen because the fabric is gorgeous.
Then I noticed how sad my kitchen table looked. I can't keep a tablecloth on it because my children will just pull it off. But the table also seems so stark with nothing on it. I decided to make my tried and true table top quilt. I've used this pattern twice before (here) and I love it because it's so easy to assemble and make.
The pattern comes from a book called Charmed and Dangerous, but you could scale down almost any quilt to be large enough for a table top. My quilt ended up measuring 23.5" by 23.5".
The back fabric isn't from the same line (it's a Riley Blake fabric) but I loved it. I just couldn't pass it up.
Ahhh, I just love how happy these fabrics are...
And here's my (MUCH) happier table:
