Bordered Star Table Topper

This project has been in my mind for a long time and I finally got the last border sewed last night. It was a simple project using half square triangles for the star and 2″ strips for each of the borders. Before quilting it is 41″ square that will be a perfect size for my little round dinette table. I will use the same blue as the last border for the binding. The quilting will be completed when Miss Daisy comes home from the Long Arm Hospital.

The best thing about this project: All the fabrics came from my stash! This does not happen often and when it does I like to let everyone know. ๐Ÿ™‚

The inspiration for this project came from a screen shot I saved from 2012 in my ‘wish file’. All the information I have about it is Lemoyne Star Medallion Quilt by PetitQuilts. I want to give credit to PetitQuilts for designing this lovely piece.





I am a retired grandmother living in hot and sunny Florida. I spend most of my days doing what I love: sewing and quilting. I have a spoiled rotten Boston Terrier named Sami who keeps me busy mostly by cleaning up after her and refilling holes in the yard that she insists on digging and burying her toys. Of course then she digs them up and brings them into the house resulting guessed it...more cleaning. I will be posting pictures of Sami, quilts, flowers, and other things as they come along. Glad to have you join me.

  1. Hi Peggy,
    Two posts in recent memory! I love having you back and sewing. This is a fun table topper. Looks like some of the blue from GK maybe?! ~smile~ Roseanne


    1. Thank Roseanne. It is so good to be back. I have lots of blue and it sneaks in a lot of my projects. I even found some that had a sticker from Montgomery Wards from Daytona Beach!!! They have been out of business from that location for over 30 years. I am ashamed of myself ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. a lovely combination of colours! Who would have thought you’d have the perfect fabrics in your stash lol.


      1. we’re all the same. I’ve just bought a huge piece of fabric to start a new quilt. I probably have suitable fabrics in my stash to start, but I’ve been drooling over more pretty fabrics on-line, and will probably order some in for this brand new project even though I don’t really need them.
