First you have to chose you a fabric that has a repeating design as shown below: This is Sanctuary Blue Border print found at Inchworm Fabrics , sold in half yard increments, you need one yard at 2.50 a half yard and with the 25% off...it is even cheaper.
Okay, back to the fabric.
Then you need the pattern, which I might add, you will receive free if you purchase the fabric above. You will cut out eight of these
Then you mark the pattern where the repeat is. As you can see, I did not do this topper this way, found it was better to have the bottom with the repeat or I would not have enough fabric. Once I get the first triangle done, I use that one as my pattern for the rest. Jeanette used the 45 degree angle to make hers, so if you have one, you are set.
Twelve minutes to do this process. I was going to finish it for you but....I want to add a ruffle to this one and need to find the fabric to do so. Tomorrow I will return with adding the ruffle. But....if you do not want a ruffle, just add the batting, backing, top ,quilt as desired and then bind. You are done.
You will have a nice gift for someone really quick and really cheap. I am putting muslin on the back so as not to waste the expensive fabric. Also, if you are not happy with how the middle turns out....not to worry, you can always put a star, circle, butterfly, or something in the middle. I am satisfied with this so I am going to leave as it.
