Happy Holidays by Atkinson Designs

Thinking about how to spruce up your table for the holidays? With Atkinson Designs Happy Holidays pattern, this is a snap!

Terry from Atkinson Designs has developed an easy way to turn simple rectangles into beautiful triangles for every holiday. This pattern makes three sizes, starting at a small table topper and going all the way up to a wonderful Christmas tree skirt.

The project is started by sewing two strips coordinating fabrics right sides together. You then cut your strips into rectangles. Then cut the rectangles diagonally from seam to seam and, before you know it, you have two 60 degree triangle blocks.  (We’re using the Gypsy Gripper, 30158, in the photo.  It makes rulers easy to position and move, and keeps fingers away from the rotary tool!)

You must be sure to cut half of them half with one fabric on top, and half with the other fabric on top. This creates the right number of opposite triangles needed to make the table topper.

After cutting all of your rectangles into triangles, you simply sew them all together and you have a quick and easy holiday piece with perfect points!

You’ll want to make one for every holiday: Groundhog’s Day, Sweetest Day, President’s Day, Flag Day, etc!

Happy Holidays!!
