Make it up in your favorite spring colors or to match your decor. You may already have a lovely color combination in your stash.
The topper itself is easy piecing and the bouquet of tulips can be completed quickly in fusible applique. You’ll have this finished up before you know it.
The wonderful shape and design of this topper opens up many creative options. Substitute another applique motif to showcase in the center, perhaps for a different season. You could also put a pretty orphan block there.
Or, choose a lovely print to show off in the center for a quicker finish. You can even leave it plain and do some special quilting in that area. The overall design of the topper is strong enough that the center can be just about anything.
The pattern, from designer Carol Steely, is for a 26″ x 26″ runner.
