How would you like to create a fast and easy table topper for St. Patrick’s Day? This won’t take any time at all to make!

When I got my box of Island Batik fabrics the other day there was one little fat quarter all by itself.

Can you see all the cute little shamrocks on it?  I just had to make something with it.

This was the perfect project to use the cute shamrock batik fabric.

 I used Heat n Bond Lite as my fusible for the four-leaf clovers and the shamrock.

I used some Aurifil thread for the free motion quilting. My background is white and I only have a creme thread but it worked!

The little table topper is approximately 15 inches square and I just did some simple echo quilting on it.

I had just enough fabric left to make my 2 1/2 inch wide binding and machine stitch it down.

Don’t look too close at my plant……yes, it is fake but it sure looks good with my St. Patrick’s Day Table Topper.

    Cute table topper! I love the plant, too. I thought it was real until you mentioned it wasn't. Is it in a Longaberger basket? I have a bunch of those and also use one on my table with an artificial flower arrangement in it.
