This pretty, feminine table topper pattern looks just like it belongs at a sophisticated garden party or elegant tea party. With a simple design made up of a large fabric panel with a patchwork stripe, the Path to Durham Table Topper Pattern comes together in no time. The ricrac patchwork strip will remind you of the piecing in Irish chain quilts.
