As my son Jack declares on almost a daily basis, “Christmas is over, sigh”. Yes Christmas is indeed over, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get excited for the next holiday on the calendar. Valentines day is one of those holidays that can easily be overlooked when it comes to decorating, so I wanted to come up with something that wasn’t red and white. Brown and pink was the first thing that came to mind! I also wanted it to be really easy to finish. If you can finish it in an afternoon, it sure makes it more fun! So, here is the “Sweethearts” Table Runner or Wall Quilt.
This is a quick and easy pattern that you can make up from your stash. The hearts are made from placing fusible web on a pieced four patch. I love how they all turn out a little different and it looks harder to piece than it actually is. I plan to frame the wall quilt for a more polished look. But, you could also use a heart quilt hanger.
