For the Love of Christmas Pt. 2

Here are the steps for making your own table topper.

Take your 6x24 ruler and put tape or mark so you will know where the 60* degree line is.

Take 4 - 2 1/2 inch by WOF or use jelly rolls and sew together 

Press all seams going one direction.

Then take your ruler and lay on your fabric like this
and then cut and then turn like this
cut and turn again
continue to cut till all the fabric is cut.  You will have 7 shapes and left over pieces, do not throw away, just set these aside for now.

You will need 6 of the 7 pieces. 

Sew 6 of the pieces together
The seams will now be going in different directions.  Which helps lock the pieces together.  Press seams towards the middle piece on one side, out towards the sides on the other one, this well help make the center less bulky. Then sew the two pieces together.
Choose your background fabric.  You don't have to add batting if you don't want it in the middle.

I have not gotten to the binding yet, that will be next.

Happy Stitching,
