St Patrick’s Day is right around the corner and everyone was celebrating it here yesterday and I figured I had better show you my table topper made with the Snail’s Trail die from AccuQuilt. This table topper is 24″ x 24″ and perfect for the center of a table.
About a month ago I won a bundle of batiks from QuiltShopGal and used two of the batiks for this table topper. There is a weekly #CreativeGoodness Linky Party every week and I will be linking this post there this week.
Last week I shared my Colorful Snails quilt and how the pieces of the block went together……I couldn’t resist showing it again.
I really should have timed making the four blocks because it didn’t take very long. Everything matches up perfectly.
Once I had the blocks finished I laid them out a couple different ways before I decided what I liked the best. I almost picked this and thought of doing some applique in the center.
Another fun way.
I ended up going with the traditional look.
I did a simple stipple quilting on it, I was going to do some straight lines on the green parts but…..I forgot and started stippling a little bigger in one of the green sections so……forget the straight lines. Note to myself: quit daydreaming while free-motion quilting. Have you made a St Patrick’s Day project?
