Christmas Cactus Quilted Table Topper Pattern

I first introduced this pattern this past summer and finally finished it. I really wanted to have it done before Christmas but other commitments took up a lot of my time during the holidays. The nice thing about this quilt is that it can be used year round because it's not too Christmasy.

These stunning quilted table toppers were inspired by the Christmas Cactus that blooms throughout the Christmas season. The pattern includes instructions for both versions shown below. Finished size for both versions is 26" x 26" (65cm x 65cm) and the finished block size is 6" x 6" (15cm x 15cm). This table topper fits perfectly on a standard 42" round table.

I'm so glad to have this pattern complete for Valentine's Day. I think these are adorable. They would add a nice personal touch to a romantic dinner at home.  Also, this is such an easy pattern to make. Just fuse the pieces together, quilt, bind and you're done.

The fabrics I used are North Woods - Felicity in Snow Cranberry and Felicity in Cranberry by Kate Spain for Moda Fabrics. They were perfect for this design.
