Fun derby themed table cover

I promised you a look at Mandy's birthday present, and here it is!

Isn't it adorable?? I used a FANTASTIC tutorial from Melissa at the Polka Dot Chair, and it was wonderful. This came together pretty quickly (only 4 hours start to finish - including quilting and binding) and was fun to make!

The fabrics all came from JoAnn's, and I am pleasantly surprised with them.  I don't usually buy quilting fabric there, but this was the right look, the right price and the right quality.

Here's a closeup of one of the jockey silks:

And the finished project laid on the couch...

It was a hit with the birthday girl, which is really all that matters...

AND - there's enough fabric left over to make one for me.  Anyone else want one??
