The table topper version of the Twinkle Sampler quilt is a perfect choice for Christmas. Each of the blocks are made up of two colours, so they can be red and green or whatever two colours match your scheme.
I used red and green fabrics in this table topper. They are from the same collection and they have been in my stash for many years waiting for the right project.
This LeMoyne star block is pieced with half-square triangles and flying geese.
Martha Washington star block is one of my favourites. It takes a bit longer to make since it has more pieces, but I like how it turns out. It is made with split half-square triangles and flying geese.
Double sawtooth star is made by putting a small sawtooth star as the centre for a larger sawtooth star.
Sarah’s Choice is another quilt block made with half-square triangles and flying geese. The difference between this and LeMoyne star is the orientation of the triangles in the middle of the star.
The blocks in this table topper are 12″, and there is a 1″ sashing in between them.
It is quilted with straight diagonal lines that go through the middle of the blocks and the edges of the flying geese triangles. This quilting design complements the piecing pattern.
The finished runner is 25″ square, so it is a nice size for a medium-sized table.
It is one of the options available in the Twinkle Sampler Quilt Pattern.
