This Will be Lovely in Your Favorite Colors and for Other Seasons!
Welcome autumn with this quick-to-make table topper. Select autumn-themed fabrics, such as the candy corn prints used here. Or, dig into your stash and choose a combination of fall colors. Before you know it you’ll have a lovely topper to display all autumn long.
This classic topper pattern will be charming made up in fabrics for other seasons, too. We can easily imagine it in Christmas colors and in spring pastels. It will also be lovely in fabrics that match your decor.
While the following examples are slightly different, with 4 rows instead of 5, they show how pretty this will be made up for other seasons and the holidays. They also show how you can play with color placement for different effects.

Simple strip piecing makes construction a breeze. Once you have sets of fabric strips sewn together, use the 60 degree line on your ruler to cut them into triangles. Everything is clearly illustrated in the tutorial from Karen Meyer of Sister of the Divide.
The finished size is about 23″ in diameter. You can easily make it larger or smaller by adding more fabric strips to the strip set or by altering the width of the strips used.
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).
