Harvest Table Topper

The warm colors in this table topper celebrate autumn's bounty using Mary Koval's Harvest fabrics for Blank Quilting. Wild Goose Chase blocks alternate with 10-1/2" squares cut from a cornucopia print. A border print fabric of fall fruits makes an ideal outer border.

For a beautiful Thanksgiving table, think about placing this table topper on point then setting the table with earth-tone or deep purple dishes.

Assemble Flying Geese Units

1. Use a pencil to mark a diagonal line on wrong side of each tan floral 1-1/2" square.

2. Align a marked tan floral square with a short edge of a medium or dark print 1-1/2x2-1/2" rectangle (Diagram 1; note direction of drawn line). Sew on drawn line, then trim excess, leaving a 1/4" seam allowance. Press triangle open, pressing seam toward tan floral.

3. In same manner, align a second marked tan floral square with other short edge of same rectangle (Diagram 1; again note direction of drawn line). Stitch, trim, and press as before to make a Flying Geese unit. The unit should be 1-1/2x2-1/2" including seam allowances.

4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 to make 100 Flying Geese units total.
