♥♥♥ Honeysweet Table Topper Tutorial ♥♥♥
Need something sweet to spice up your Valentine's Day?
How about a Valentine inspired table topper!We have teamed up with Paula from The Sassy Quilter to show us
how to create an easy table topper, in just one weekend.
She used a Honeysweet jelly roll by Fig Tree & Co. for Moda to whip up this
easy project. It measures 24 inches x 24 inches and is perfect for the top of any table
or you can use it as a wall hanging.
Here is what you need to get started:
Open up that jelly roll and pull out the red, pink/peach and cream colored
strips. You will need only four of each color.
You will also need a 12 1/2 inch square ruler.
Here we go...
Cut all of your strips in half on the fold and layout a strip set that includes
2 cream, 2 pink and 2 red.
Now join all your strips together into one big strip set. I suggest sewing
in groups of two and then sew those together.
Press carefully, making sure not to distort the strips, and square off one
end so it's straight.
Place the diagonal line along the seam between your two pink strips
with the 8 3/4 inch mark at the very end of the fabric.
Here's a close up...Now, use your rotary cutter and trim along the
top two sides of the ruler.
Rotate your strip set, line up the two sides you just cut with the 8 3/4 inch
markings on your ruler. Trim the two remaining sides.
Your block should look like this.
Join the four blocks to form the center.
Take the rest of your strip set and cut two - 4 inch strips from each one.
That will give you eight - 4 inch strips.
Join two of the strips together, matching the cream ends, to form
your border. Do this for all four sides.
Line up the center of your border with the center of the top and place
pins as needed. You will have excess on both ends. After attaching the
right and left borders, trim the extra so that it is even with the center blocks.
Repeat for the top and bottom borders.
Voila! You did it!
Layer up your top, batting and some backing and quilt as desired. I quilted
mine with a walking foot. Here is the back so you can see the design.
You will need to join three jellyroll strips to create your binding strips.
I pulled some green ones, but choose what you like! I finished with a
Hope your Valentine's Day is extra sweet!
