Rendezvous Winter Table Topper Picture Tutorial

Hi everyone!! This is Sally sneaking in and posting for Julie today!! Isn’t it so sweet of Julie to let me take over her blog??? (very trusting!! LOL!!!)

Today I’m going to share a unique tutorial!! It’s unique for several reasons:

First, this is going to be an ALL PICTURE tutorial, which means that you will be able to figure out how to make this by looking at the pics only! You can click on the pics to make them bigger...(I’ll give you measurements and little hints here and there!! LOL!!)

Second, the pictures of this tutorial were taken in two different states!! Yes!! I started this project in Julie’s work room! (that's right, that magical place that has all of her fabric bolts and goodies!) I sewed all of the blocks on her fun machine, too!! Then I came home to Texas and finished it all in my little studio! Yay!!

So without further ado, here is the project:
The Rendezvous Winter Table Topper Picture Tutorial

To make the half square triangles, cut your squares 3  7/8”.
Cut your middle square 12”x12”.

And use a die cutting machine like an Accuquilt Baby Go cutter to cut out these cool trees!

Let's put this thing together!!

A couple of hints: Put fusible web on the back of your fabric before you cut out your appliqued trees. Also, you can quilt it however you want, but when I did it, I used a little bigger stitches, which I love!

Feel free to email me at sally AT sallysangelworks DOT com if you have any questions or comments about this project!

Check out Julie's store HERE for some Rendezvous for YOU to make this project!!

Thanks for letting me crash Julie's blog!! And if you want to see other tutorials and fun pictures and just my plain outloud life, visit me at my BLOG!!
