You will need:

  • embroidery thread (either polyester or rayon)
  • medium- to light-weight iron-on stabilizer or interfacing,
  • light-colored fabric for the central embroidered part,
  • Christmas patterned fabric for the star-shaped border,
  • fabric for the backing (we used the same fabric for the border and for the backing),
  • batting,
  • graphic pencil, scissors and fabric glue (optional).

Sewing the Quilt/Table Topper

Step One: Although it's not too difficult to make the template from scratch, using our ready-made one is much easier! Download the file with the template. To open and print the template, which is a PDF file, you will need Adobe Reader or a similar program. The program is free to download and install.

Step Two: Print out the template.

Step Three: Adhere the fabric for the top to the iron-on cut-away stabilizer or interfacing.

Lay the piece out with the stabilizer facing up. Position your template over the stabilizer and trace the template with a pencil.

Step Four: With a pair of sharp scissors, cut out the central part 1/2" from the inner line.

Cut notches into the seam allowance from the edge to the inner line.
