This table topper was made in only half a day. I used the 5 Minute Block tutorial on you tube which can be found HERE. It took me about half an hour to cut out the fabric and sew the initial blocks together as per the tutorial.. I actually did this yesterday but I didn't start putting them together until 1.30 today. I had the table topper finished by 4.30 this afternoon so, half a day all up. Before I stitched them together, I moved them around to see which pattern I liked the best. I finally decided on the flying geese pattern because it was the easiest... Not something I usually do..
The blocks I made were 10 inches square and this would be really good if you wanted a large quilt. I didn't so I trimmed 2 3/4 inches off the end of the blocks. The full size blocks can be seen in my earlier post..'Been a busy girl'..
These are the blocks before I trimmed off what I considered to be excess fabric.
Here it is ready for machine quilting. I like to quilt in the ditch on smaller pieces like this.
