Let's Celebrate....Table Topper or Wall Hanging

Building Joy 

or which ever season you are celebrating table runner or wall hanging!!!


 Spring/ Summer
Shown in Soft Dreams from P&B Textiles

The example is being made with Winter Wonderland by BunnyHill for Moda with Kona Lipstick and Snow for the front piecing. The applique and backing is Essentials by Wilmington Prints. 
The brick sections of this pattern will also work great with some leftover  jelly roll strips!!

Pattern can be found here.

The pattern has be revised and includes full instructions and reverse letter templates for the included appliqués...Joy, Noel, Be Mine and Hello Spring

But the fun part is you can appliqué anything you want into the middle section....just depends on what  you want to celebrate!!

I used Heat'n'Bond light for the applique and also added a lightweight interfacing to the back of my centre section to add some weight to the fabric for appliquing. So just trace the letters on the heat and bond and rough cut them and apply to back of fabric according to package directions. Then cut them out and apply to your centre section.

Check out if you are looking for some new font alternatives

There are lots of free fonts available, just know that you will have to play around to see how large to print them, each will be different!

I used a blanket stitch to overcast the raw edge. I set my stitch to 3.5 width and 2.5 length (Pfaff PassPort)

Joy Version

If you want the option of a wall hanging, just add folded squares of fabric to the top two corners during the binding process.

Hello Spring

  1. I do like this and for me it is " Achievable!!!" and with some fabric from my stash, some "steam-a-seam", this should be fun.
