Scraps Make an Impressive Table Topper |
Choose Two Accent Colors to Tie Everything Together!
Small Pineapple blocks made from scraps combine beautifully in this pretty little table mat. The red and black accents tie everything together into a charming little quilt.
We can easily imagine this in many other color combinations. Simply choose two accent colors that work well with your scraps for a lovely rendition.
The blocks are small so the instructions specify paper piecing. If you haven’t tried that yet, give it a go with this pattern. You’ll produce accurate blocks and a crisp finish.
Of course, if your standard piecing is up to snuff, you can do that instead. Create cutting templates from the paper piecing pattern. Just be sure to add seam allowances.
The finished topper, designed by Connie Kauffman, is 20″ x 20″. You can easily make it larger by using a copier to enlarge the block pattern. Then enlarge the outer triangles (Prairie Points) to fit.
You’ll find the “Fireside” table topper in Terrific Table Toppers.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
