    This is a photographic tutorial.  A link to download this pattern in PDF is available at the end of this tutorial.  You need to download it so that you have the fabric requirements and cutting requirements for this quilted project.

    002

    Lay out complimentary fabric scraps and choose the appropriate number needed for this table topper.

    006

    When you cut out your Star Points, be sure to draw a diagonal line, corner-to-corner, on the BACK of your fabric.

    008

    Once you have your fabric choices, this photo above shows you the fabric cuts needed for this table topper (sans the 1″ Scrappy Bright Fabric as is noted in the PDF pattern).

    009

    Begin by making flying geese to create your Star Points.  Sew ONE (1) Star Point to ONE (1) of the 4 1/4” x 7 3/8” strips ON the line you drew.

    010

    Next, trim off the corner of the White and Star Point fabrics 1/4″ beyond the sewn line.

    012

    Press the Star Points toward the Star Point fabric.

    013

    Repeat the same process as shown above, with another Star Point fabric sewn diagonally on the White fabric strip.

    014

    Again, cut the Star Point corner 1/4″ beyond the sewn line and press the Star Points toward the Star Point Fabric.

    015

    Now, sew TWO (2) of the Star Point strips to the left and right side of your center fabric.

    017

    Sew the 4 1/4″ White Cornerstones to the remaining TWO (2) Star Points and then pin them and sew them to the top and bottom of your Star.

    018

    This is a photo of the finished center of this table topper.

    020

    Next, time to add the White left and right borders to your center star.

    022

    Then sew the top and bottom White borders to the center star.

    025

    Create your scrappy final Border using the images above and the cutting requirements in the PDF pattern.

    026

    Sew the left and right scrappy borders to the center star and White border.  Then pin and sew the top and bottom scrappy borders onto the center.

    029

    This is a photo of the finished table topper top!

    030

    Follow up with quilting the table topper as desired.

    032

    Finally, sew the binding onto your table topper and whip-stitch or machine stitch the binding to the back (or front, depending on your binding process) of your quilt project.

      Quilt Designing in Bulk

      I decided a few months ago that I wanted to design a series of baby quilts – all for beginners but half of them would contain nothing but straight lines and the other half would have some simple half-square triangles or quarter-square triangles.  I started out with two I had already designed:

      Originally, I wanted to design and make five different quilts for each group…but, as I got into it, I realized I couldn’t stop with five and changed it to a six-pack of beginner-friendly baby quilts.

      IMG_9745 (450x285)

      Counting the two above, I have completed eight baby quilt tops towards my goal of a dozen, or two six-packs.  I’ve already designed all 12 baby quilt tops, just have to find the time to make them!

      If you are a quilt designer, do you design in bulk?  Or one at a time?
