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.

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

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.
