Little Ruby Table Topper

Hello, Friends!
I have a little table topper to share today.
I made it from a Mini Charm pack of Little Ruby
by Bonnie and Camille for Moda.

I didn't have a pattern for this table topper,
but I was definitely inspired by Sherri from A Quilting Life.
showing a sweet way to lay out the squares on point.

I had just received my mini charm pack,
and I just "needed" to make something with it.
I cut some a whole bunch of 2 1/2" white squares,
and in almost no time I had the quilt center finished.

I really LOVE the way that many designers
use a color palette that blends one fabric collection
with other lines that they've produced.
It makes it so easy to finish precut projects,
even when you don't have yardage from the same line.
I used a fat quarter from Hello Darling
to create a mitered border.

There were only a few squares left over
from the mini charm pack.
I used those to make a pieced backing.
I chose a piece of blue scallop fabric from
the original Ruby line, for the rest of the backing.

For the binding, I chose a bias stripe
from a fat quarter of Hello Darling.

I think this topper looks pretty on the front...

and on the back, too!

{I really love pieced backings...don't you?}

Sometimes you just feel the need to create.
Those mini charms will burn a hole in my sewing stash,
if I don't make something with them soon.

This project was so enjoyable that 
would not mind stitching up a bunch of them
into table toppers like this.

What do you like to make with your mini charms???

Linking up with Fabric Frenzy Friday!

  1. Hello Amy. Your table topper looks lovely. I made one similar to that with a Bonnie and Camille mini charm pack too last year. Your spotty tea pot goes well with it! Christine

  2. This is gorgeous Amy!! I have so many mini charms and you've given me a perfect project to use them with! I'm a sucker for any and all Bonnie & Camille fabric!

  3. That's a wonderful way to use up those mini charm packs, Amy! I noticed how your quilting perfectly lined up with the pieced backing. It looks great from the front and the back!

  4. It's lovely. I really like the binding sloped like that. What a cute teapot!

  5. I love both the teapot and the quilt ♥

  6. You take the most beautiful photos Amy! This little topper is adorable!

  7. You have used every last square to perfection. Love it.


I look forward to your comments and will read each and every one, even if I am not able to reply to all of them.
