    Focus fabric table topper or runner pattern please

    I just returned from a trip to New Orleans where my dh happily let me visit four different quilt shops. What fun! I bought some cute Cajun cooking fabric that I would like to use in a topper or runner. I also bought some black and white fabric with forks on it. I am looking for a FREE pattern to use these two fabrics with. I have searched the Internet but kept ending up on dead ends. Then, a light bulb went off! This board is the best resource so now I'm asking my QB buddies to share some of your links with me.

    Thanks in advance!

    I hope you get some ideas. I'm sure someone will be able to help you. I only make quilts.

    I was just in New Orleans and only saw one quilt shop. Hmmmm. But my daughter and I really enjoyed taking a cooking class, food, plantations, food, gators, food. It was a wonderful trip.

    We went to the Quilted Owl and Mes Amis in NOLA. We drove across Lake Ponchatrain to Sew This in Abita Springs; the 23 mile bridge was something to cross over! We were actually going to the Abita Brewery but since we were there anyway...... Then, we drove to Lola Pink in Lafayette after a trip to the Tabasco plant.

    We took a cooking class,too. I just weighed and I gained 4.5 pounds. Ouch!

    It's always helpful if you show us the fabric ... and then ideas usually overflow here on the QB.

    My crystal ball is absolutely no good in visualizing fabrics
    .... though it often goes into overdrive, once it knows what fabric it must use!

    What kind of pattern are you looking for pieced, appliqué, paper pieced etc.? There are some great octagon table toppers shown on QB. There are more difficult ones like the Star Spin topper, Spicy Spiral runner, French Braid etc.

    Do a search on the board for toppers or runners. You will find some patterns. Paintmejudy did a mystery train ride with a table runner as the final result. http://www.quiltingboard.com/attachm...0-img_0706.jpg
    if you decide this is the one you want to make, read the entire thread as for the first time of all her mysteries there were a number of mistakes in her process which she did correct.

    Simplest would probably be a 10 minute table runner (really takes longer) or a pentagon or octagon , (maybe hexagon) table topper. But there are lots of runners and toppers made using various blocks Just do a large center in the right shape and add borders to get the size you want.)
