Fast and Easy Table Toppers
I used 8 – 2 1/2 inch strips of fabric, sewing 2 groups of 4 together using these neat fabrics I got from Pauline that I mentioned yesterday..
I have a Starmaker 6 ruler from Kaye Wood that I bought years ago. I use it to make all kinds of triangles and octagon blocks and just love it. I have included the link if you would like to check it out.
The shape I cut out is a 60 degree cut. Most cutting mats have this measurement on them.
This is a closeup of my cutting board. The markings are on one corner…check yours.
I also have several Olfa rulers that have the 30, 45 and 60 degree markings on them. I put the 60 degree line along the bottom of my fabric.
I could use the ruler to cut the triangles. The size of your strips really don’t matter, I have made teeny tiny blocks and big ones. Whatever is the width of the strip determines the size of the triangle.
I laid one of the 4 strip lengths on top of the other one and cut my shapes.
From one length of fabric I was able to cut 12 triangles and made 2 center pieces. I even have a little piece leftover.
I used Warm & Natural batting and some yellow stripe from my stash. It would take 2 – 2 1/2 inch strips of the width of fabric if you wanted to put binding around each one.
I decided to use up some more of my cotton cluny lace.
I zig zagged around the edges first and then top-stitched the lace on.
I used Bottom line thread in a Oatmeal color for the quilting.
They are pretty bright and colorful and so cute with the Easter baskets and bunny-dogs. I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter!
