    I just finished piecing this Star Spin; it's a pattern for a table topper. I'm undecided if I want to add more blocks and borders and make it queen-sized or back it and use it as a table topper. I have a question for either way, hope someone can help.

    1: if I decide to make it into a quilt, how do I determine the size of the "inset" blocks in the corners? Do I measure and add seam allowances or is there another way?

    2. if I decide to keep it a table topper, can I sandwich top, batting, and backing then sew and turn it right side out? I really don't want to add binding as it would detract from the stripes.

    Thanks so much for your help!

    that is so pretty! I'm not great at the figuring stuff, but if were me, I'd lay it down on paper, make it square by drawing with a ruler, then cut out the missing area and add seam allowances. I have to do that when ever I need to add things.

    If I were making into a quilt, I *might* just appliqué it on...

    That is one gorgeous table topper (or quilt)!! I bought the pattern but mine is the quilt.....can I just do the center for the table topper or is the table topper a different pattern from the quilt pattern? Your colors are just so awesome.
