It’s not too early to start thinking about Thanksgiving. I saw Turkeys on sale in our local market yesterday.
A few years ago, I made a couple of fun Thanksgiving Table Toppers. The first was a grand experiment. I tore off the colored silk leaves from an artificial autumn bouquet, arranged them on the fabric I had chosen for the top (and lightly glued them) and placed a shimmery piece of sheer chiffon over them. Of course, I quilted the glittery square with my Thanksgiving Table Topper Pictogram. I was excited by the result. I was so easy yet so special.
The next year I wanted to try something new. I decided to make it reversible. After all with the renewed popularity of “modern” style, I might want a lime green topper instead of a brown one. Who knows? I’ll have to admit it was quite ambitious but turned out super!
I chose a Dk. Brown Batik for one side and a good strong Chartreuse for the other. (Oops, threads not buried!) The Autumn leaves around the edge could be the same colors for both.
It turned out so great I wanted to share it. So, I took photos of the “step-by-step” and converted them into a FREE PDF tutorial for all of you.

Golly, I need to make one for myself. One of these decorates my Daughter-in-law’s table and the other my Daughter’s. I’ll have to go there for Thanksgiving!
