Scrap-Buster Table Topper is a Beauty!

This utterly charming 9-patch scrappy table topper will be at home just about anywhere. For a more coordinated look, simply vary the fabrics to match your decor. The quilt would also look great hung on a wall, adding a cheery note wherever you choose to display it.

Select fabrics you love just for this quilting project, or better yet, raid your scraps and stitch together a truly one of a kind creation. This is a super easy project and will go together quickly for both beginning and experienced quilters.

Saltwater Taffy scrappy quilt

Quilt designer Laura Boehnke calls this quilt “Saltwater Taffy.” It’s easy to see why with the bright and airy fabrics she chose for this confection. The quilt is free-form quilted with swirly shapes, but straight-line quilting, or stitch in the ditch, would be equally effective.

The quilt is basically nine-patch squares alternated with background blocks. Half square triangles make up the scrappy border. It measure 27 1/2″ square. It won’t take long to finish this lovely little patchwork quilt.
