Challenge Submission: Retro Table Topper

 Just a few days before we came up with the idea of an embroidery challenge, I had bought this really cute Stitcher's Revolution pattern called Kitch'n Stitch'n (enter our giveaway for a copy here):

I knew without a doubt that I would be using it in this challenge.  I decided to limit myself to four motifs and make a mini-quilt for my dining room table.  It was hard to choose, but these are the four I picked:
The mixing bowls because they look so much like the Pyrex I love.

This reminded me of my Fiestaware so it made the cut.

This "Butter me up" simply because it's cute.
This one because I would love an old mixer, especially in aqua.  I think I was born in the wrong era.
I used perle cotton and a backstitch to give my stitching a solid look and to make the colors bright and shiny (and because I had it).  It was stitched on bright white kona cotton.  The quilt was made with Dream On by Urban Chiks for Moda with rick rack trim.

Be sure to vote for you favorite and enter our contest here to win a copy of this great pattern!
