120 Degree Table Topper

Designed by Jan Krueger



Cut strips 1/2" wider than the finished height of the triangle. Align the top of the tool with the top of the strip and the wider end of the tool with the bottom edge of the strip of fabric.

Cut on both sides of the tool for the first cuts.

Rotate the tool to place the narrow end of the tool at the top of the fabric strip. Continue rotating tool and cutting across the strip.



Cut strip desired width. Fold strip as shown in Figure 1, to cut triangle. Place dotted line of tool on the fold of the fabric, making sure the flat edge at the top of the tool and the line width are aligned with the edges of the fabric strip. Cut with rotary cutter.

Fold strip again, as shown in Figure 2. Flip the triangle over and place the dotted line on the fold of the fabric, aligning the flat edge at the top and the line width with the edges of the strip. Cut along edge of tool.

Continue cutting triangles across the width of the strip.

To stitch triangles together, place 2 triangles right sides together and stitch with 1/4" seams, as shown in Figure 4a.

Start and stop stitching 1/4" from each end. Press seams to one side. Place third triangle as shown in Figure 4b.

Start and stop stitching 1/4" from each end. Press seams to one side. Stitch final seam as shown in Figure 4c. Press seams.

To cut half triangles, align the flat tip at the bottom or top of the folded strip, and the flat edge of the tool on the short edge of the strip and cut on the diagonal edge.

cutting directions

assembling the quilt

STEP 1 Using the red, pink and yellow triangles, piece them together in triangles as shown below. Make 6 triangles.

STEP 2 Using the green and orange half triangles, sew four pairs of triangles together. Leave the other four triangles as singles.

STEP 3 Following the diagram below, piece the triangles together in rows. Then stitch the rows together to create the large hexagon table topper.

finishing the tablerunner

STEP 1 Trim the batting and backing 4" larger than the table topper. Layer the backing wrong side up, the batting and the table topper right side up. Baste, then quilt as desired. Before binding, hand or machine baste (with a walking foot) a scant 1/4" from the edge of the quilt to prevent the layers from shifting.

STEP 2 Join the binding ends with diagonal seams pressed open. Fold the binding in half, wrong sides together and press to make a double binding. Sew to the quilt with a 1/4" seam, mitering the corners. Trim the excess batting and backing, turn the binding to the back side and stitch down by hand with matching thread.
