Today I'm showing the As the Crow Flies table topper. This is a quick, easy to sew quilt, just perfect to whip up in time for your Thanksgiving feast. The pattern for the As the Crow Flies table topper appears in the November/December 2018 issue of Quilty magazine
I worked with this gorgeous color palette provided to me by Riley Blake Fabrics. This is the Calico Crow collection by Lauren Nash. These autumn themed fabrics have squirrels, pumpkins, crows, and more ~ so cute!
This quilt features a nine patch off center block and has a woven feel to it created by the placement of fabrics surrounding the nine patch's red border. The pattern incorporates strip piecing techniques for fast construction.
The 35" x 23" size fits just right on my kitchen table. This would also look terrific dressing up a buffet for your holiday feast. This versatile design could easily be made in other color schemes to coordinate with your decor. Just remember to keep the values and fabric placement the same for a similar look.
I played with a variety of quilting motifs on this quilt. I quilted a feather flowing out of the lower left corner and up two edges. I also quilted double circles in the both of the red borders.
I quilted a different design in each stripe, just for fun.
I love the way the Warm and Natural batting by The Warm Company quilts. It gives a nice weight to my project, too. Not too light, not too heavy, just right.
You can see shadows from the front of the quilt with the sun shining through, but I did want to show the backing fabric because it's soooooo cute! It's all pumpkin pie style recipes and vintage food advertisements. Love this fabric!
