Pleasant Summer House Table Topper and Table Runner

I really had fun working with this beautiful bundle of Pleasant Summer House from Fat Quarter Shop. I received a fat quarter bundle and one additional yard that I used for the binding. I actually have enough fabric left to make another table topper which isn’t done yet.

We had some snow yesterday and I thought it would be fun to take the runner and table topper outside.

This first thing I made was this table topper. I have always loved all the fabrics that Heather Mulder Peterson designs and Fat Quarter Shop did a wonderful Designer Tidbits all about her that you should check out if you missed it.

Since I had quite a bit of fabric left over I decided to make a table runner.

I had it all finished and then thought it needed a little something extra added to it… I free motion appliqued some pretty flowers on it. I think it added just the right touch!

I hope to write a tutorial for the table runner soon!

  17. Your runner with the applique flowers overlaying the design is perfect for a spring morning! Thanks for offering this giveaway.

  23. I already like FQS on Facebook. I love all that snow you have but glad we don't have any snow (at the moment anyways!!). Thanks for the chance to win 🙂

  24. It's hard to decide which design I like the best from this line… they are all so pretty! But if I were pressed to choose it would be Seaside Cottage Brown Focal Print Yardage.

  25. My favorite from the Summer House collection is the Cream large floral – because it is very crisp and contains the colors of all the other fabrics in this line!

  26. Love your table runner with the added flowers! You're right, they do complete the look. Great fabrics, too. Thanks for the chance to win!

  27. Love what you created with those fabrics Connie! I'm going to have to make one of those round table toppers. And you're right, those flowers are the perfect touch!

  28. gorgeous table toppers Connie,you must be the queen of the toppers and i am one happy follower,have a good day,oh also love your snow pics,it must be unreal to get snow.xx

  29. Love your table topper and runner. Your added appliques are just perfect to set if off. Do a tutorial on your free motion applique technique….maybe?

  30. I love the Seaside fabric as well as Fishy … make a choice? If I could do that I would probably not have 1/2 the fabric I have… I love it all!!

  31. I really like these hexagonal table toppers you've been making! And the table runner with the special touch of flowers is the cutest idea! Also, I bet that last picture isn't really a black and white photo, right? Almost all our snow here in my western New York neighborhood is gone, as of today at least….

  32. I love both of these, Connie!! The flowers on the runner is the perfect finishing touch. 🙂 Those fabrics are luscious, aren't they? 🙂

  33. It's tough to choose which of the fabrics is my favorite Connie. I think it would have to be Summer House Yellow Spike Floral. I just love the two toned blue colors used in the flowers rather than to have them be just one color against the background. Very pretty

  34. My favorite fabric from this collection is Seaside Cottage Gray Tonal Yardage – I would love to back a quilt with it!

  35. As always, another fantastic Connie creation. Looks like you got quite a bit of snow. We got almost 13" down south of KC. Glad to hear your high speed is coming in tomorrow. Should make a big difference.

  36. I think you have ALL the snow that we were supposed to get….we've gotten Nada. As usual, love your table runner, especially the appliqued flowers. I like Heather's fabrics, too. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.
