Crisscross Table Topper

Electrify the muted colors of "Plush Posies" like quilt tester Laura Boehnke did using Sue Zipkin's Samba collection for Clothworks. The solid outer border in Laura's version has the illusion of piecing, thanks to a fabric made up of multiple "print" squares.

By using just four blocks and borders, Laura created a 35-3/4"- square piece. Use it for a birthday party as a table topper.
