Autumn Batik Table Topper

If combining colors is a challenge for you, turn to Mother Nature for inspiration. Batik fabrics in a variety of autumn colors, patterns, and textures are assembled into a square table topper. Fabrics are from Artisan Batiks for Robert Kaufman Fabrics, Moda Fabrics, Timeless Treasures Fabrics, Bali Fabrics, and Hoffman Fabrics.

Assemble Blocks

1. Sew together two different assorted batik 3x42" strips and a dark brown batik 2-1/2x42" strip to make a strip set (Diagram 1). Press seams in one direction.

2. Repeat Step 1 with remaining dark brown batik 2-1/2x42" strips; remaining assorted batik 3x42" strips; and the ecru batik, brown leaf batik, and orange batik 3x42" strips to make five strip sets total.

3. Cut strip sets into 4"-wide segments, cutting six or seven segments from each strip set, for 32 segments total. Set aside remaining strip sets for border.

4. Join two different segments to make a block (Diagram 2). Press seams in one direction. The block should be 7-1/2" square including seam allowances. Repeat to make 16 blocks total.
