Time for Table Toppers!

Oh Sew Easy Table Toppers: 27 Projects for Stylish Living

Judging from the best selling book titles at some of our favorite project book resources, table toppers are among the hottest new project categories, combining the ease and speed of a mini quilt with the practicality of a useful home accent. Consider these reasons for their popularity:

  • They’re a great way to try a new block technique without committing to an entire quilt.
  • They’re easy to complete, even for the time-challenged.
  • A table topper could be the right project to turn your non-quilting friends into fellow addicts.
  • They make good experimental pieces, allowing you to work out new color palettes and designs
  • When you’re ready for a new table look, it’s easy to transform the old one into a pre-quilted pillow front or purse!
  • They protect your table’s surface from scratches and other daily abuse.
  • Last BUT NOT LEAST: They’re an excellent project for all those adorable Marcus Li’l Bits 5″ fabric square packs you just couldn’t resist at the quilt shop. These versatile, mix-and-match fabric assortments are easy to craft into a complete table ensemble: toppers, bordered place-mats, runners, even coasters!
