Strawberry Patch Table Topper Quilt {52 UFO Quilt Block Pick Up}

table topper quilt

Awhile back I had participated in a strawberry exchange— and I had recieved a little table topper quilt.  I love this thing, and I have been thinking ever since that it would be fun to make my own. Well, after digging around in the UFO Quilt Block drawer I found enough small 4 patch quilt blocks that would work. 

Here is my inspiration– it's been folded for a season, but is now on display to flatten out.

One of my favorites about this quilt is the bright color and the green embroidery thread used for tyeing!! It is so dainty. I love it.  So, I decided to do this on my little table topper too-

Materials needed:

4– 4 1/2" ufo quilt blocks

4– 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" 4 patch quilt blocks

4– 2 1/2" X 11" background strips

1– 4 1/2" background square- center of table topper

2– 5" X 5" background cut in half diagonally

2– 4" X 4" background cut in half diagonally

Instructions:

1)  Sew one UFO Quilt block to either side of center square

2) Sew one triangle {the larger ones} to either side of the other 2 UFO Quilt Blocks

3)  Sew these 3 rows together

4)  Sew the smaller triangles to the 4 corners of the center block

5)  Sew the 4 patch squares to the ends of 2 background strips

6)  Sew 2 background strips to the sides of the center

7)  Cut out 4 strawberries and green tops

8)  Raw edge applique the strawberries to the top.  I free handed my strawberries, but if you need help coming up with the fruit you can use these to help {or pick a different fruit!}

9) Cut out backing and batting to match the top

10)  Pin together the 3 parts.  Bind the edges

11)  With 3 strands of embroidery thread tie the quilt blocks and add strawberry seed stitches

The table topper isn't a huge quilt….but it will cover on a side table nicely. I am thinking that it would be a fun doll quilt too.

I think the funnest part of sewing this baby up was the ironing! I know. what the heck? but, seriously. I got my first long ironing time with my new Oliso Quilting Iron– and it was the best ever!  I will be using it over the weekend and will share my whole wonderful experience next week.  Just in case though, they have a 10% discount this month use the code 10PER to get it!
