    These two table toppers were made from a pattern that I picked up at a quilt show. They were fun to make - they are larger, 42 x 42. My pattern was called crazy eight strip teasers - I have seen different pattern names on this thread.

    They were made for my mother and mother in laws birthday. I picked the material for my mother, and my dear husband picked out the material for his mom. I think he did a good job.

    Very pretty!

    I have seen a few of these on here, is there a tutorial posted somewhere, or a link to a pattern? I would love to try my hand at it!

    I just LOVE that pattern! Can it be made using pre-cut 2.5" strips? Or are the strips some other size?

    Can it be made from 8 - FQs?

    those are really stunning! And they won't be able to say that you are playing favorites either since they are equally beautiful. Does your mother and mother-in-law keep track? LOL

    Favorite Fabrics/Nan - are you thinking of making kits for this pattern? How about kits for bow tucks too?

    Thanks so much for posting this, I ordered one today as well.

    Beautiful job on the table toppers, love the colors. Your husband did a great job picking out the fabrics too!

    Actually, I was thinking that the table would be excellent for kits... figuring that a customer could invest in the pattern once, and then after that, just buy a kit of fabrics that would allow you to make one of these for every season or reason.

    Had not though about bow tucks, though.

    You cannot use fat quarters - you need the width of the fabric. The strips were from 8 - 1/4 yard of different fabrics (you need the full 9 inches) 1 1/2" wide - my instructions told me not to pre wash the fabric and to leave the selvage on. It wasn't hard to make - the binding was a bit challenging - but I got it done. I know others on the thread haven't bound theirs - but I prefer a more finished look. Can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with!
