Scattered Flowers Coffee Table Topper

Click to enlarge.

This is another project inspired by Elizabeth Hartman‘s Craftsy class, Inspired Modern Quilts: 7 Small Projects with Big Style. I had purchased Thimble Blossoms’ June Bug quilt pattern moons ago but hadn’t started it because I thought it too time consuming but after watching the tutorial, dove in and made a bunch of pedals.

Because I positioned the pedals close to one corner of each block, I had to make sure that they were clustered toward the center, a mistake I made in a previous iteration which will no doubt become mug rugs for gifting and giveaways. 😀 I quilted all the linen parts of this piece with a rambling vine motif which I doodled on paper first, there are a few random flowers tossed in for good measure.

My sewing space is rather chaotic after so much sewing so I’m going to take the day off to clean and organize. Not sure what I’m going to do for my next project. If you have any great tutorials, please pass them along!

Cheers, Tabatha

  1. I like this table topper! We have a table that is very similar and it is covered by a woven cotton rug. I think your solution is MUCH more stylish! I may have to give this a try.
    I found your blog through MSQC! Thanks for giving me a window into your world!

  2. I love it! It makes such a cute table topper and looks perfect there. The randomly spaced flowers are super cute and that typewriter key fabric–be still my heart!

    • In retrospect, it would have been cool to turn one of the flowers. I know what you mean about that Circa 1939 fabric by Cosmo Cricket. I bet there’s some on sale somewhere! ;D
