This topper is very easy to make. Sew the required number of half square triangles from square blocks and set them together as indicated. Just be sure to choose fabrics with enough contrast to make the overall pattern stand out.
Designer Paula of The Sassy Quilter includes excellent instructions for making accurate half square triangles.
She also provides a great tutorial for machine-sewn bindings.
The great instructions with this free tutorial make this project perfect for beginning quilters.
A layer cake, fat quarters or fabrics from your stash all work well. Have fun playing with colors while you lay out your little quilt!
