As lockdown continues here, I’ve had lots more time to play with my favourite scraps!
I’ve been needing a little mat to place under the tray that sits on my oak table. I also love the process of making ‘stacked coins’ from scrappy strips.
So put the two together and what do you get? My free Scrappy Table Topper Tutorial!
The tutorial will take you through how to make the stacked coin columns – they can be any size you wish, maximising the size of scraps you have.
You will also see how to quilt the topper using a quilting bar – that weird looking ‘allen key’ type bar that languishes in your accessories tray! It’s a really handy little gadget, and will save you lots of marking out time!
I also show you how to make and finish off the binding by ‘stitching in the ditch’ from the front side.
This is a really quick little project, and you can make these pretty and functional mats any size you like! I now have several of them dotted around my house, bringing me joy each time my eye catches some of my favourite fabrics.
I hope you enjoy the tutorial. We are getting better with each one that we make, and we have more planned!
