Autumn Leaf Burst Embroidered Tabletopper
For this quilted tabletopper we used the designs from the Leaf Burst Set.
The construction of the topper is very easy, it uses just 3 kinds of fabric to form a basic square block with two borders.
The finished size of the tablerunner is about 30" x 30".

Finished quilted tabletopper featuring leaf embroidery in the central part.


You will need :
  • embroidery threads, either from our color card, or to match the colors of your fabric,
  • 1 fat quarter for the central part (we chose a neutral sandy color),
  • about 1/4 yard of brown fabric for the first border and binding,
  • about 1/2 yard of patterned fabric for the second border,
  • fabric for the backing,
  • batting,
  • quilter's ruler,
  • rotary cutter,
  • iron,
  • #12 universal needle,
  • #12-#14 quilting needle.

Cutting:
Out of the fabric for the central part, cut a piece measuring 18 1/2" x 18 1/2".

Out of brown fabric, cut
  • 2 strips measuring 1 1/2" x 18 1/2",
  • 2 strips measuring 1 1/2" x 20 1/2",
Use the remaining fabric for the binding strips.

Out of patterned fabric, cut
  • 2 strips measuring 5 1/2" x 20 1/2",
  • 2 strips measuring 5 1/2" x 30 1/2".

Assembly:
Note: seam allowance is 1/4", press the seam immediately after you make it.
Sew the brown 1 1/2" x 18 1/2" to the upper and lower edges of the central part.

Embroidery:
Mark the positions for the embroidery on the central part. If you have a printer and embroidery software, print-outs of the designs will be helpful. Otherwise you can cut out paper rectangles of the same size as the designs and distribute them on the fabric for convenience.
Stabilize the chosen area. Hoop the fabric tightly and embroider the designs one by one.

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

Pin all layers together.
We quilted in a free-motion style all over the quilt.
Press with heavy steam. Square the quilt. Finish the raw edges with the binding.
