I love decorating for the Holidays. I really did not have much of anything for Valentines Day. So last week I decided I really needed to make something.
I really like to decorate with table toppers. For this one I used a pattern for the background but did not use the pattern hearts because I wanted these toppers to be done as quickly as possible. I used hearts cut with my Accuquilt Go. For the first one I quilted I did a meander filler. I thought that was taking too long so the rest of them do not have as much quilting.
For the ones I am keeping for myself I did not put a heart in the center because I always sit something there and you do not see it anyway.
For the other toppers I did not use a pattern at all and kept it very simple.
For the heart shapes I used dies I got from Sizzix that I got really cheap on Overstock.com.
The problem with using these dies with my Accuquilt Go is that I think the actual dies are thicker the Accuquilt ones. It really did a number on my cutting mat.
I used fusible web on the back of my hearts and stitched around them while I was quilting.
They really went together quickly and now I have some nice new modern Valentine decorations.
Plus, I have 2 extra to give away. I am giving one to Lou because she takes care of my cats when I go away. The other one is going to Margaret. She won it in the door prize drawing at the Pineapple Workshop last weekend.
