One-Eyed Monsters in the Living Room

My hubby and I decided to buy some new living room furniture for Christmas. A new beautiful dark grey couch and chair as well as new end tables. Now we have seven grand-children and I would like the new furniture to stay new-looking for a while so we protected the new couch and chair with a stain-resistant treatment and I decided to make two table toppers for the tables.

The pattern I used to make these is One-Eyed Monsters from Cheryl Brickey's book "Just One Charm Pack Quilts". I got the book for free because I was a tester for Cheryl.

I obviously didn't make a full quilt from the pattern - I pieced four blocks, sewed two of them together and added borders to make the top large enough to cover the table (20" x 27").

The fabrics are Kona Black, Kona Charcoal (blocks and binding), Kona Dove (background) and an orange fat quarter from my stash. The back is a cotton print I bought on sale from Fabricville a while ago. 

I stitched some straight lines in a grid for the quilting. I didn't use a ruler or tape - I basically used the seams as guidelines and eyeballed everything.

I think my new table toppers look really cool and I couldn't be happier with the results.


  1. Very nice! It's fun to have some new furniture - enjoy!

  2. Enjoy that new furniture; I hope it holds up well for years to come. And the One Eyed Monster table runners are a fantastic touch!

  3. Fun! I recognized the pattern right away, have been planning to make this one from the book. Looks great on your tables!
