Roses and Stars Patriotic Quilted Table Topper

This beautiful quilted tabletopper is great for Independence Day! We used patriotic colors around the white stars, and embroidered each star with roses for added interest.

The finished size of the table toppers is about 33 1/2" in diameter.

We used the American Beauty Rose embroidery design for a large (5" x 7") hoop.

For the project we used the Diamond ruler by Darlene Zimmerman and cotton fabrics of different colors:

  • about 1/2 yard of white fabric,
  • 1/4 yard of red fabric, and
  • 1/2 yard of blue fabric.
You will also need backing and polyester craft felt for batting and stabilizer.

Cutting:

Out of the red fabric cut:
12 diamonds with side 3 1/2";

Out of the white fabric cut:
42 diamonds with side 3 1/2";

Out of blue fabric cut:
24 diamonds with side 3 1/2",
3 strips 2 1/2" wide and the length of the width of the fabric (for the binding).

Assembly:

On your working table place the white diamonds to form stars. Sew the diamonds together with a seam allowance of 1/4". You'll have 7 stars.

With the help of the red diamonds, sew the stars together with a seam allowance of 1/4".

Sew 3 blue diamonds together in 6 strips as shown.

Trim the extended end of the central diamond as shown.

Sew the strips and the remaining blue diamonds to the edges of the stars.

Embroidery:

Place the top on the polyester craft felt. Smooth with your hands and baste along the white border.

Embroider the American Beauty Rose designs.

Quilting:

Now place the backing on a flat surface (table) face down. Spread your working piece over it.

Pin all three layers together with 1" pins and start quilting. We quilted along the lines of the embroidery and then made stippling all over the topper.

After the quilting is finished, press the piece with heavy steam. Finish the raw edges with the binding.

The Roses and Stars Table Topper is ready. Enjoy!

Happy Stitching!
