Play With Fabric to Create a Pretty Combination!
Patchwork hearts against a neutral background create a lovely table quilt. Display it for Valentine’s Day, anniversaries and other special occasions. It will be a lovely wedding or shower gift, too, in the couple’s wedding colors.
Choose a variety of prints for the patchwork. These can be fat quarters or leftovers from your stash. Notice how the designer mixed blue, violet and tan in with the red. The variety gives the table quilt a lot of interest. Consider varying the fabric styles, too.
Fuse the pieced hearts to the background, then use a satin stitch around the outside edges.
The finished size of the table quilt, designed by Deborah Schlegel of Art Threads, is not specified but it appears to be about 19″ across.
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!
