 Have you seen the new Wonky Heart die from AccuQuilt?  It makes a finished 6″ block and there are all kinds of creative things you can make with it.  I decided to make a quick and easy table topper that is perfect for the autumn weather we are starting to get. The first time I shared a post about this die was using some fun orange batik wonky hearts, and still, need to finish that!

I shared this Wonky Heart table topper on AccuQuilt’s blog a couple of months ago but thought I would post the Wonky Heart Table Topper tutorial here in case you missed it. It is even on sale right now!

Fabric Cutter:

GO! Fabric Cutter (55100S) or GO! Big Electric Fabric Cutter (55500)

GO! Cutting Dies:

I used a combination of batiks that I received from Island Batik as an ambassador, a Bella solid, and a cream cotton fabric that had been in my stash for quite some time. I think this is just about the last of it and it was great for a background fabric.

Materials Needed:

  • 1/2 yard cream fabric
  • 1/2  yard brown multi-print batik (this includes the binding)
  • 1 Fat Quarter brown batik
  • 2/3 yard backing and batting

Sew with a 1/4″ seam allowance

  • Cut 2 cream – 10″ squares
  • Cut 2 brown multi-print fabric – 10″ squares

Lay all 4 fabrics on the Wonky Heart die and cut out. Remove the center 3 sections as shown in the photo – that will be your wonky heart.  There are great diagrams on the Wonky Heart packaging to help you also.

    My quilting friend shares her Accu Quilt cutting system with me and we use it quite often. Yet, we only have a few dies. I really like this table topper that you have shared with us today, so I think that this will be my next save up money to buy die set. I especially enjoyed the brown batiks you used in your table topper, Connie. It is perfect for Fall or to use around the house in an area that has a certain type of wood or upholstery. Thank you for sharing and have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  5. I did miss it and it is so adorable that I am glad you posted it on your blog!
