This gorgeous table topper is often called Strata Star, Spinning Star and Card Tricks. The version below in green is called, appropriately, the Irish Star.

The table topper is beautiful in any colorway. We especially like it made up in batiks.

This project is quite easy to construct, despite its complex look. Once you get started, you may find yourself making a topper for every season!

Spinning Star Table Topper

From Country Cottage Treasure (a kit is available while supplies last).

The following video will walk you through the steps of making a 32″ table topper.

The size of your topper can easily be changed by adjusting the number of strips used or by making the strips wider or narrower. Just keep the strips all the same width so they line up properly once cut into triangle shapes.

If you don’t already have a triangle ruler (get the Fons and Porter Easy Diagonal Sets Ruler used in the video here), a square one will work just as well. Turn it on point and use tape to mark off the dimensions on the ruler so it’s easy to align and cut just the right size.

An easy way to finish your topper is to stitch all layers together and turn it, then stitch the opening closed. You can also bind it with bias strips, which is the method specified in the following tutorial for a 32″ topper.

The tutorial is from Vicki Purnell at Vickie’s Fabric Creations. Be sure to visit her site for more great free tutorials.
