Rock Candy Table Topper

I think that Jaybird Quilts is a genius quilt pattern designer! I have completed 3 of her patterns this year and they have all been great. She has custom rulers that go with her patterns, and really they are the only ones I think I will ever need! Her instructions are always clear and complete with pictures.

I completed the Rock Candy Table Topper pattern this past Spring and I gave it to my Aunt and Uncle as a (late) Christmas present. This pattern is great if you are looking for a fun and fast project to complete :)

The fabric is Leah Duncan's Meadow for Art Gallery Fabric. I believe the blue fabric is a P&B Textiles Colorweave print. You can't really tell from these pics, but I used a small leaf design in middle part for my quilting design. This was the first project that I quilted on my new machine and actually braved free motion quilting! I only had white thread and was in a time crunch so I didn't brave quilting the outside blue fabric. To finish, I made a scrappy binding with the same prints from the center. It takes a little longer to make scrappy binding, but I love how it pops!!


  1. The scrappy binding really pops!! Love the colours you used against the navy it's so striking.
