My current W.I.P

I'm currently making a patchwork topper to protect my antique drawers as i'd like to put things on top of it in my craft room but don't want it to get damaged. I love this tilda fabric but it's quite pricey by the metre. When we went to the Amy Butler evening we popped to Embsay first and they were selling the fabric in pieces so I bought 3 that I liked, originally not for anything in particular, just that I liked them! I also bought a nice white embroidered piece of fabric that I thought was cute! When I started making this topper I got out the fabric that I intended to use and it just didn't 'pull' me into the direction of wanting to use it. I then remembered the tilda fabric and thought it was perfect! I took these photos earlier today, it's now progressed a little. I have now attached the wadding and back sheet and sewn on 15 white buttons! Tomorrow i'm hoping to stitch on the binding (the pretty white fabric) and then it will be finished ready for it's new home! :D
