What happens when you spill your drink?
Of course you make a new table mat! I only had one mat for my side table and when I spilt my drink on it I thought another would be a good idea.
I used quick and easy quilt as you go technique and it didn't take too long before it was finished and taking up residence on the side table.
I used a pack of fabrics I had purchased from a craft show a few years ago in Sydney. Of course there were enough left-overs so I just had to make a matching table centre!
You can find this pattern here and it's called Winter Seeds Table Topper. It's from the Crafty Quilter and she has an easy to follow tutorial as well.
