Lone Star table topper made with Dutch chintzes

UPDATE June 2016: The pattern for this table topper is now available in my pattern store on Etsy.

In November 2010 I bought some Den Haan en Wagenmakers fabrics (Dutch chintzes) when I was in Groningen, the Netherlands. These Dutch Heritage fabrics are inspired by 17th and 18th century Indian designs:

I have been suffering a bit from homesickness lately, so decided to use these fabrics for my next Lone Star project: a table topper.

The binding was a bit tricky - I should have cut the strips on the bias, but there wasn't enough of the blue fabric left to do that.

So it's not perfect - but I love it!
