Mini Autumn Table Topper


I really didn't need a new table topper. 

You know how it is when you see something you like, you just have to make it? 

That's my trouble with reading blogs...so many ideas and so little time!

This time I saw the Little Leaves block and wall hanging project on Temecula Quilt Company's blog. 

I thought I'd like to make a mini wall hanging for my front door. 

But once I made a few little leaves blocks, I wanted to make more!

So I made nine 3" blocks. They were a bit fiddly, but SO darned cute!

I sewed them together and added a coordinating border. 

I also added a colored stack of the leaf fabrics to each side to make the piece wider. 

Straight line quilting was all it needed.

This little guy was no longer going to hang on my front door. 
I wouldn't be able to admire it if it was facing outside!

So it found its way to the small table in our sitting room. 
Of course, we had to have matching coasters too!

It was completed just a week before Thanksgiving, which was good timing. 

Tomorrow (or the next day or maybe next week), the turkeys and pumpkins and fall quilted projects will be put away. 
All to be replaced with sparkly Christmas things!

Table topper measures: 10" x 15"
Coasters: 4" square
