Play with Values to Create Your own Special Topper!
The Seven Sisters block is a long-time favorite among quilters. It has been used to perfection in this beautiful table topper.
We love the vintage appeal of the fabrics selected by the designer. This pattern will be just as lovely made up in your favorite colors.
This pattern is fun to play with, too. Different effects can be achieved by varying value and color placement.
Modern vivid prints, muted small-scale prints and more will work well with this pattern. Give it whatever mood you want. Select a combination of colors that work well together and you’ll be rewarded with a charming topper.
The colors of Debby’s original photo above have been modified to enhance the value contrasts and show another way of designing your topper.
Construction of this quilt has been simplified – no Y-seams! Plus, all the cutting can be done with a ruler and your rotary cutter.
You will need a 60 degree ruler for this project. If you don’t already have one, the Fons and Porter 60 degree pyramid ruler is a good choice (get it here).
The pattern, from Debby Kratovil Quilts, is for a 37″ x 42″ table quilt.
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!
