Holiday Table Topper | Tis The Season Bonus

All posts may contain affiliate links.

Last week I shared the news about my latest class with Annie’s Creative Studio and this week I am sharing a very special bonus project, a holiday table topper.

Create this holiday table topper while learning a new twist on block making, applique techniques and see a demo on free motion stitching in the Tis the Season Quilt class.

For me, the holiday’s are all about gathering with friends & family, slowing down and just enjoy the simple pleasures life has to offer.  Since our family is sprinkled throughout the US we never know exactly who will be joining us but one thing is for sure, our doors are always open! That’s why we need a long table runner, one that will truly span the table and not just be a small placemat in the center.

MY LATEST VIDEOS

Most table toppers are either too small or too long for my liking. So, I decided to make my own. The size of my table was perfect for 5 blocks however you can customize your table topper to fit any number of blocks.

Materials:

*Fabrics highlighted and used are from the Mulberry Lane collection from Benartex.

Cutting Instructions:

From assorted background fabrics:

  • 4 rectangles, 2 1/2″ x 9 1/2″
  • 2 rectangles, 2 1/2″ x 13″
  • 8 rectangles, 2 1/2″ x 13 3/4″
  • 140″ of binding
