Beautiful Mini Scattered Table Topper

I have been having so much fun creating quilt projects with this beautiful Mini Scattered quilt pattern. This table topper is perfect for a square table.

I used the last of the Mini Scattered quilt blocks to make this table topper. The sun was shining on the table so I took advantage of it and really like the way the shadows are on it.

The size of the table topper is 19 inches square which is a good size for a table

I was going to make a pillow and then a friend came over and really liked the Mini Scattered table runner on our kitchen table. I asked myself whether we really needed another pillow or wouldn’t it be fun to make a table topper for their square table.

Fabric for the Mini Scattered Table Topper

When I made the table runner, I just used a brown batik I had in my stash for the accent fabric. When I went to put the rows together for this quilt project I didn’t have enough of the fabric I had used for the sashing. Luckily I have a nice stash of brown batiks and was able to find something that matched.

I added a 2½-inch border to make it a little bigger.

I had fun teasing Bob when I finished making it. I put it on our table and asked him what he thought of our new table runner. He paused for a minute and said “Well, it is a little small.” Then I flipped it over and showed him the label.

This is another way to add a quilt label to a quilt project. I took a 5-inch square and folded it in half. Then I wrote on it with a Micron permanent ink pen. Once I had that done I lined it up in one of the corners and stitched it down with a 1/8-inch seam before adding the binding. The backing batik is the same one I used on our table runner.

The table topper is made with 4 rows of blocks. Can you believe you can make both of these with one charm pack?

I hope they like it!

Isn’t this a sweet photo of Mr. Mickey and the table topper? I took about 6 photos and this is when I said the word “treat”. His hair is a little short as he went to the groomer last week.

I went outside to take a picture of the table topper in the snow and Mr. Mickey was out there with me. I called him and couldn’t believe how he came running! I was hoping I could get him to sit by the quilt.

This is the sidewalk we put in to go down to the firepit Builder Bob built at our Maquoketa home.

He looks so cute! You would never imagine he has congestive heart failure. Of course, minutes later he was coughing something terrible.

He ran up to me, got snow on the Mini Scattered table topper, and then took off!

I have mentioned that we are feeding another feral cat this winter and two possums. I was finally able to get a picture of her, isn’t she a beauty! If you are wondering what is all over the ground…..well that is the shells from the black oil sunflower seeds we feed the birds. I try and keep the cat fed so she doesn’t eat our birds.

That’s a healthy looking stray cat! I enjoy each post you put out, they are always upbeat and positive. I appreciate all the free patterns and recently bought one of your patterns when you had your sale. Haven’t started it yet as I am doing a laminate flooring project right now.

  9. That is a wonderful picture of Mr. Mickey! “Treat” is one word that dogs learn very early on! Your mini table runners are very nice. I enjoyed seeing your snow also: here in Georgia we very rarely see it but there is a chance of it this weekend.

  10. Hi Connie thanks for the photos. Mr. Mickey looks like he’s having a wonderful time enjoying being a model. My Jimmy John does a lot of running around and then choking after. While he has not been diagnosed with her congestive heart failure I know that he is deconditioned. He’s 12 now. I love the mini scattered. I have lots of boutiques and I think I’m going to modify my scattered pattern for the mini. I’ll let you know how it goes. Thanks for sharing. Ellen😎❤️

    I love your table squares and quilts.

  12. Mr Mickey looks so cute when he poses for you. I’m guessing your friend loves her new table topper because it’s lovely. Maybe that kitty will eventually allow you to pet her a little.

  13. Good morning from St. Catharines, Ontario. Thanks Connie for sharing your stories and patterns with us. I enjoy reading your posts. ❤️batiks. Also, Mr. Mickey is so adorable. Animals are such a comfort. We are cat sitting, Marilyn, for our kids and she is such a sweet cat.

  14. Brown is not my favorite color, but I just love these brown batiks, Connie! And such a nice set you are gifting! Of course, Mr. Mickey is always a great quilt model! LOL And that kitty is so pretty. She reminds me of two of my grandkitties. Have a great day!
