It Can Also be Used as a Trivet and More!
This pretty little heart is perfect for Valentine’s Day and other special occasions. Use it as a placemat, mug rug, trivet, or pot holder (add a layer of Insul-Bright batting for heat proofing).
Make one or more in traditional red, pink, and white. Or go with any color combination you enjoy, even one that matches your decor.
The center heart is made with easy paper piecing. Log cabin style borders finish it off. While it looks complex, you can make one or more in just a few hours.

The completed placemat, designed by Lisa Cox from A Spoonful of Sugar, is 11 ½ inches across from one point to the opposite point.
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!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
