Table Topper with Easter Basket Cutwork Embroidery

The Easter Basket Cutwork Lace that we used as the centerpiece of this table topper really sets off the traditional quilt blocks we placed around the edges. It's a real eye-catcher! If you add a sleeve, you can use it as a wall hanging as well.

The finished size of the table topper is about 26" x 26".

You will need: 1/2 yard of white fabric; 1/2 yard of light yellow fabric, 1/4 yard of green fabric and scraps red and dark yellow fabrics.

You will also need low loft batting or polyester craft felt for batting, fabric for backing.

For embroidery, we used embroidery polyester threads.

Seam allowance is 1/4".

Cutting:

Out of white fabric, cut

  • a square measuring 14" x 14";
  • a strip measuring 2" x 32", subcut it into 16 squares measuring 2" x 2";
  • 2 strips measuring 2 1/2" x 40", subcut it into 32 squares measuring 2 1/2" x 2 1/2".


Out of light yellow fabric, cut

  • a square measuring 14" x 14";
  • 2 strips measuring 2 1/2" x 23";
  • 2 strips measuring 2 1/2" x 27";
  • 3 strips measuring 2 1/2" and the length of the width of the fabric for the binding


Out of white fabric, cut

  • 12 squares measuring 2 5/8" x 2 5/8" ; cut them along the diagonal to make 24 triangles.


Out of green fabric cut

  • 2 strips measuring 2" and the length of the width of the fabric; subcut them into 56 squares measuring 2" x 2";
  • a strip measuring 2 1/2" x 40", subcut it into 16 squares measuring 2 1/2" x 2 1/2".
Out of dark yellow fabric cut 8 squares measuring 2" x 2".

Out of red fabric cut 16 squares measuring 2 1/2" x 2 1/2".

Assembling the Blocks

There are 2 blocks in the quilt. for both blocks you will need half triangles. To make them, place the 16 red squares with 16 white squares face to face.

With a pencil, draw a diagonal on the lighter square. Stitch scant 1/4" from the pencil line on both sides.

Cut along the line. Open the new squares. Press the seam towards the red. Trim the ears. Repeat for all the pairs. You should get 32 red-white squares, measuring 2" x 2".

In the same way make 32 green-white squares.

Block A: Make 8 blocks

Block B: Make 8 blocks

Embroidery

Mark the center of the 14" x 14" white square and embroider the Easter Basket Cutwork Lace.

Place the embroidered square on the yellow 14" x 14" square. Align all edges. Baste the pieces together. You can also use temporary fabric adhesive, check that it does not spoil the white fabric.

Assembling the Top

Using 2 blocks B and 1 block A, sew them into 2 rows:

Sew the rows to the upper and lower edges of the central square. Note: The central square has 2 layers of fabric.

Using 2 blocks B and 3 blocks A, sew them into 2 rows:

Sew the rows to the left and right edges of the working piece.

Sew the 2 1/2" x 23" yellow strips to the upper and lower edges of the working piece.

Sew the 2 1/2" x 27" yellow strips to the left and right edges of the working piece.

Quilting:

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

Pin all three layers together with 1" pins and start quilting. We quilted in a free motion style all over the table topper.

After the quilting is finished, press the work with heavy steam and square the work -- all corners should be 90 degrees and opposite sides should be of the same length.

Finish the raw edges with the binding.

The table topper is ready. Enjoy!

Happy Stitching!
