Leaf table topper

imageI saw this pattern on line and just had to make it.  You can use different fabrics to make a seasonal leaf table topper.  I used “Soft and Stable” instead of batting for the leaf shapes to give the leaves some “body”.   I also used batik fabrics and picked colors that played well together.  A walking foot is helpful when making this project.  imageIt helps to audition your fabric choice on the background leaf fabric.  I was going to use the light green fabric for the back of the leaves and the dark green fabric for the top of the leaves.  But I placed my fabrics on the dark green and the colors didn’t pop so I used the light green fabric for the top of the leaves.

imageI would like to make another table topper in fall colors.  still thinking about fall and cooler weather.

Keep having fun sewing and quilting.  Donna
