It’s Great for St. Patrick’s Day Too!
Set the stage for a beautiful Valentine’s Day with this lovely table topper. It’s the perfect centerpiece for a bowl of chocolates or a vase of flowers.
While pink, red, and white are traditional, the topper will be just as beautiful in other colors. For example, we can easily imagine it in gold and white for anniversaries and weddings. Silver and white will be lovely for those events too.
Go through your stash and pick out a combination you love. Just be mindful of values so the design emerges once sewn together.
While it looks complicated this is a relatively simple project that you’ll have finished and on the table in just a few hours. It’s constructed with standard piecing and is supplemented with a bit of fusible applique.
The completed table topper, designed by Helle-May Cheney, is 17 1/2″ x 17 1/2″.
The topper is also great in greens for St. Patrick’s Day.
We used Photoshop to create the example shown above from the Valentine’s Day topper. The designer’s version distributes the values differently for an equally beautiful example, as seen below. Also note the cute quilted shamrocks.
The toppers for both holidays can be made from the “Candy Hearts Table Topper” pattern.
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!
