I have made this topper before, following the directions, for Christmas. It’s a great little topper for the middle of my table.
My mom liked it a lot, especially the size. So, while I was at her place sorting her fabric (I’m the best daughter ever) I pulled out three fabrics that I thought would look good.
So, even though I used the same Sticks and Stones pattern, I had to adjust it slightly for cutting the same pieces from yardage. You can be very efficient by cutting strips the width you need and not 5″ squares that would come in a charm pack.
I sewed it up on one of my mom’s machines and had it done by dinner. I did straight line quilting just in the cross sections.
And here’s the back.
You could easily use 3 fat quarters for this instead of a charm pack, with a fourth FQ for the backing.
