    Table topper challenge

    I was taken with nakotha's table topper here http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...ml#post5776017 . Turns out the pattern is in a German magazine. So I was challenged to make it on my own. I noticed it was made with 4 French braids and two half 60 degree stars... neither of which I've done before... so more challenging. I fussy cut the starting squares at 3.5" since that framed the flowers. I cut the braid strips at 1.5" since they looked like 1/3 of the square. Because of the angle of the star, I added 1/4" to the star strips. I added more cornerstones to balance the look. The finished size is 12.5"x28". I used a thin flannel for batting. I used the birthing method. All the fabric came from my scrap bin.

    Not only did you do a wonderful job of figuring out the pattern on your own . . . . the inspiration you saw was only posted a bit ago! Your fabrics are eye-catching! Love it!

    I love the design!!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I guess I missed the op because this is the first time I've seen it.

    Your rendition is impressive (not the least because you finished it in a week's time).
    I like how you added the cornerdiamonds on both ends as well.

    The pattern has a lot of possibilities.

    Very pretty and springy. It does look hard, but you make it sound very easy.
