I never seem to get tired of making table toppers….especially out of batiks. I had a little bundle of batiks from Island Batik and I decided to do a quick and easy project with them.

The pieces were about 3 inches wide and 10 inches in length so I cut 18 of them into 3″ x 8″ pieces.

  • Sew the pieces together with a 1/4 inch seam allowance
  • Sew 3 pieces together for each block
  • Make a total of 6 blocks

Rotate some of the blocks as shown below.

Quilt as desired. I decided to do a simple free-motion stitch with some loops.

Here is a closer view of the quilting.

I had a green batik in my stash that worked perfectly for the binding.

The finished table topper is 15″ x 22 1/2″.

It is always fun to take a picture or two out on the deck. A little pot of flowers looks perfect on the topper.

    This is a great project to make in the green tones or any other colour combinations. Lovely for home decor or gifts and quick to make.
    Thanks, Connie, for kicki-starting 2023 with a “must make table topper”.

  4. Love the simplicity of this – and the quilting is so lovely! Took a breather yesterday and made one of the folded squares quilt fabric ornament. Never seem to get the “Ornament of the Year” done BEFORE Christmas. It’s okay – it’s still 2022! for another couple hours! Hugs to the puppers. Happy New Year!

  5. You design very nice table runners. How about some table toppers – 34″ x 34″ size.
    Speaking for myself, I have many of your runners, now some lovely topper would be appreciated.
    Thank you

    I snickered when I read Michele's comment above because I thought to myself, "I bet Connie could change toppers twice a day and still have more to use" LOL
