Hello, Everyone! Today I am thrilled to share my Vintage Noel Table Topper with you.
Recently, I joined the Thermoweb design team and I’ve had the opportunity to play with some products which are brand new to me- I think my absolute favorite is the Decofoil!! It comes in tons of colors- and I just heard that they are adding even more colors for next year… I can’t wait to see them. If you walk around Target or browse around Pinterest for a while, you will see metallics everywhere. You can use Decofoil to add metallic elegance and shimmer to all kinds of fabric and paper projects.
Note- if you decide to order DecoFoil online, please use this link. This is an affiliate link, which means that I get a small percentage of the sales- that will help to defray some of my costs for making the sample. Thanks!!
When I saw the pretty gold and silver foil, I immediately thought of Christmas. I designed a motif with the word “Noel” and some simple holly leaves and berries. I started going through my fabric stash, and I was drawn to some traditional, muted red and green fabrics. Then I found a “greige” (that’s not quite gray, not quite beige/tan) floral fabric which I thought would be perfect for a border to pull it together. When I put everything together, it had a vintage feel to it… and Voila! My Vintage Noel Table Topper/Mini Quilt was created.
My long-arm quilter, Danny, did a phenomenal job in the center with some metallic thread to complement the metallic “Noel” and holly leaves. You can also stitch over the Decofoil- see how she added the veins and details to the metallic leaves:
You can find Decofoil in craft stores, or order it online here.

I’ve also posted a YouTube video showing how I used the DecoFoil for this project- if you’ve never used the product before, I think you will like watching this step-by-step how-to video to see how easy and fun it is!
I hope you will try the Decofoil– it really is soooooo much fun! I have plans to add metallic shimmer to lots of stuff!!
Wow!! How pretty is that! Your Christmas Noel mini quilt is lovely. And added Christmas sparkle with the deco foil, I have never seen, heard or used this before so am feeling rather excited at learning a new skill. Looks like a lot of fun!
Your mini quilt is beautiful. The sparkle is great on your quilt and the quilting is gorgeous also. What a cool project. Thanks for showing how to use the decofoil, I’m going to give it a try.
Jacquie and Mariann, I hope you’ll give it a try- it’s lots of fun :)

Your table topper is beautiful. Thinking of ways to use this foil and show my quilting group. Maybe Easter Eggs? Thanks for the tutorial.
Easter eggs would be really pretty too- great idea!
Really fun! What a fabulous effect!
Please note I changed my email address. I just love the mini quilt of your’s. I can think of a bizzillion projects where I could use Decofoil, that is after I finish all my ufo’s first. I’m sure you know how that goes. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. May your day be stress free and loving.

Absolutely gorgeous. Will have to make this one!
It was great to see you featured on Sew Mama Sew! This is a terrific project and the finished product looks so much more complicated than it is. Thanks!
Wow I just love what you did with the foil, it looks awesome :)
Beautiful! Thank you for sharing.
This is very beautiful and the decofoil really adds that extra bit of elegance!
Gorgeous quilt. Great job. Thanks for sharing.
Your topper is an eye popper! I have watched Jenny Doan work with it but have not used it. You are correct about metallics, they are every where. Love following you and can’t wait for 2016
I found this in my spam and have entered your new address. This is the 1st time I’ve seen the Deco Foil being used, thanks for the tutorial. Loved it. I have seen this product in stores and thought it was for use with one of the cut out type machines.
This is absolutely gorgeous! It looks vintage and charming. I want to make this! The quilting is an amazing part of this design.
What a great project idea. I used Decofoil for the first time a month ago and I am going to use it in many more projects, with this one being one of them.
This product looks like fun! Do you have to use their adhesive or will any iron on like wonder under or heat and bond work?
Hi Nancy- I’ve never tried using another adhesive. I assume that if Thermoweb has created a special adhesive to use with the foil, that it is the best way to go.
I used their adhesive and after using it, I don’t think I would use any other. I might try another or two with scraps, but the texture and way it adhered was marvelous.
Yes I think it’s always best to use the recommended product- the products are formulated to work together.
Jacquelynne, this is absolutely GORGEOUS!!!! Love the metallic embellishments – so sparkly and festive – WOW!!! I can see that at some point I’m going to have to play with some of these metallics – too tempting :-)
Absolutely stunning! Not only is the quilt beautiful but the quilting is gorgeous too!
