Do you ever do a warm up quilt project before you start quilting a special quilt? The other day I talked about doing some warm up freemotion quilting before I started working on a project for a magazine and that is what the Batik table topper in teal is.
Teal Batik Table Topper
SIZE 28″ X 28″
My warm up project was a UFO from a Batik Table Topper Tutorial I did earlier this year. The fabrics I used are batiks from the Crystal Cove collection by Island Batik, I made a different wall hanging and tutorial with this collection last spring.
I really, really liked all of the batiks in this collection, do you ever have fabrics that you just hate to use the last of?
There is nothing fancy about the way I quilted the wavy lines, I used Aurifil thread in a cream and the batting was Hobbs 80/20. I really like that batting anymore. For the backing I used a cotton fabric that I had in my stash, it isn’t a batik.
Most of the time I don’t want to use my batiks on the back of the quilt and this works fine for me.
I always enjoy sharing a closeup of the quilting. This is a fun quilt pattern to make following the easy directions and tutorial I did for the same table topper in red other. The only difference is that this one is much larger and I didn’t sew around the outside of the quilt blocks.
Batiks used: 2 dark teals, one light teal and one cream
- Cut 3 inch strips the width of the fabric.
- Cut 3 – 3 inch strips of all four fabrics.
- Sew them together with a ¼″ seam allowance.
- Make 3 strip sets.
- Press and measure your strip sets.
- Each one should measure 10½inches long.
- Sub-cut pieces 10½ inches by 10½ inches for 4 blocks.
Creating the blocks:
- Take 2 of the squares and place them right sides together going in opposite directions.
- On one the stripes are horizontal, on the other they are vertical.
- Stitch around all 4 sides.
- Cut the block diagonally twice.
- Carefully arrange the sections so you don’t stretch the bias edges.
- Layout a design you like and sew the pieces together.
I forgot to take a photo so I made some more blocks but didn’t sew around the outside.
I don’t remember exactly what size the blocks were.
This is the same table topper tutorial that I shared with my Valentine table topper except it is bigger. Just click on the link to go to the tutorial. Notice it is in the snow……that was in February.
Just another photo of the quilt in the snow. This could be a table topper or a wall hanging.
