The topper which can also be made as a tree skirt, is not a circle but a 12 sided shape. Each of the wedges can be free motion quilted which is fun to do, and provides a lovely effect, or choose straight line quilting. Fabrics can be seasonal or pulled right from your stash. Use contrasting colors in dark chocolate, tan and cream, or mono-tone deep blue, light blue and white.
The pattern is designed to use a backing fabric, however I recently saw the backing made with strip piecing. Quilting Sisters Unravelled strip pieced 2 fabrics for the backing.
