The finished topper measures approximately 34 inches x 34 inchesFabric Requirements4 different fabricsBindingBackingBattingCutting RequirementsCut 5 x 2 inch strips across thewidth of the fabric from each of thefabrics120 X 2 ½ inches (3 x width of fabric)37 inches x 37 inches37 inches x 37 inches ( I used a thinpellon)All seams ¼ inch unless otherwise statedIt is essential that you are accurate with your piecing. Stitch 4 x 2 inchscrap strips together, press and measure. They should measure 6 ½inches in width. Adjust your seam allowance if necessary by movingyour needle position.

One word of advice, the resulting blocks have edgesections that are cut on the bias, they will stretch, soif you have to unpick a block and take it out of yourquilt it is best to discard it and replace it with acomplete new one. If you wish you may press, notiron your pieces before assemblingeach block with a good ironing aid product .When placing your strips to be pieced together be mindful of wherethey will finish up in the topper to give you the effect you want.1. With right sides together stitch one (1) 2 inch strip to another 2inch strip.2. With right sides together stitch the remaining 2 inch strips tothese two.3. Set the seams and press the seams in one directiononly.4. You may have specialty ruler to cut the trianglesout but a quilter’s square that is 9 inch or largersquare is fine so long as it has a 45 degree line acrossthe centre.5. Neaten up one end of your strip set if you wish and lay thesquare out on your fabric as shown.6. Take your square and lay the 45degree line on your lower strip edgeas shown in the diagram and cut upthe side of the ruler with the rotarycutter as shown in the picture below. Discard the piece youhave cut off or retain for another project but we will not be usingit.

7. Slide your ruler up to the opposite seam and again line upthe 45 degree line with the seam and cut along the ruler line8. Repeat steps 6 and 7 until you come to the end of your strip.You should have atleast 4 pieces cut. Youneed to end up witheight (8) of each typeof the large triangle.9. You should have onestrip set left .We nowneed to cut the smaller triangles that go on the ends of the starin the same manner. A word of caution only cut one triangleto make sure that it fits before you cut all of them from the

strip. If not adjust the size of your triangle. If you do not haveprecise seams as you keep piecing the error could increaseand it is crucial at this stage.If you have a triangle ruler ,use it to cut eight (8) isoscelestriangles such as the large ones we have previously cut thatare 4 ½ inches high.10. If you do not have a ruler, take your last strip set andmeasure in 4 ¼ inches from both the long edges and rule linewith a wash away marker or similar.11. To cut the triangles, line up the 45 degree line on your rulerwith the lower edge of the strip set as you did previously but thepoint of your ruler must be on the 4 ¼ inch line as shown.

12. Cut up the right hand side of the ruler just to the 4 ¼ inch mark,then with the ruler still in place along the bottom of the strip cutdown the left hand side of the ruler as shown.13. Slide your ruler over to the other side of the strip, line up your45 degree mark and cut out the next triangle remembering thatthis side of the strip has a different 4 ¼ inch mark that you drewin previously.

14. Continue until you have 8 of the small squares intotal, 4 of each typeTable Topper Construction1. With right sides together stitch matching pairs of trianglestogether as shown with the 90 degree angle matching the 90degree angle side. Repeat for all 8 sets of triangles.2. Set the seams and press the seams to one side.3. Stack your triangles with triangle types alternating with each other.This makes it very easy to lay the design out.4. Take your first triangle set and place as shown, then going aroundin a clockwise direction place the remaining triangles out withcorners meeting at the centre

5.Place the smaller triangles in positions so that they are continuingthe swirling pattern already in place

6. To stitch the topper together treat as two halves. For each halffollow the numbered steps as in the diagram. Eg stitch 1 to 2then stitch this completedsection to 3 and so on.7. With right sides together stitch the two halves together.8. Press all theseams so that theyare going around ina clockwise oranticlockwisedirection.9. Unpick the fewstiches holding thelayers together atthe centre and pressout flat with yourfingers. This meansthat you no longerhave that “volcanoeffect “ in the centreof you block.
