Autumn Appliqué Table Topper

Don’t be afraid to choose a strong print or plaid as an appliqué foundation. Here, appliqués in the rich colors of the Farmhouse 2 collection by Buggy Barn for Henry Glass & Co. hold their own against a prominent gold-and-red homespun background.

Cut Fabrics

Cut pieces in the following order. Cut border strips lengthwise (parallel to the selvages). (Download project pdf for appliqué patterns.)

To use fusible web for appliquéing, complete the following steps.

1. Lay fusible web, paper side up, over patterns. Use a pencil to trace each pattern the number of times indicated in cutting instructions, leaving 1/2" between tracings. Cut out each fusible-web shape roughly 1/4" outside traced lines.

2. Following the manufacturer’s instructions, press fusible-web shapes onto wrong side of designated fabrics; let cool. Cut out fabric shapes on drawn lines. Peel off paper backings.
