Play up the Hearts or Take Yours in Another Direction!
This versatile table topper can take on many looks depending on the fabrics and color placement. It was designed as two rows of hearts nestled together but creative fabric selection means it can be so much more.
You’ll have fun going through your stash to find a great combination of fabrics for your version. Pay particular attention to value placement, as that along with color will have a big impact on what emerges as the overall design.
The following examples show you how versatile this pattern is (the name of the quilter is above each photo).
Notice in the following version how yellow was pieced into the basic shape to create the flower center. Alter that shape by cutting a hexie and piecing yellow to one side and background fabric to the opposite side.
The topper above is from Zina. We muted the colors a bit in the one below just to see how it would look.
You’ll find many other creative examples to enjoy and to spark your creativity here.
The topper, designed by Julie Herman of Jaybird Quilts, goes together quickly. You can have this finished in just a few hours.
Once you get started you may have so much fun playing with the design options that you may want to make more than one!
You’ll need a Jaybird Quilts Hex N More Ruler in order to complete the project. This is a very creatively designed ruler that you can use in many different ways.
The finished topper is 20″ x 23”.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
