Patchwork Heart Table Runner


 I spent part of yesterday making a new table runner. I was inspired by the fabrics in Deb Strain's Surrounded by Love collection for Moda. I used a Layer Cake for every bit of my runner--all the parts and pieces of every block, the sashing and posts, the scrappy back, and the scrappy binding were all made with Layer Cake squares! You can find my PDF Patchwork Heart Table Runner pattern here.


 I don't have a lot of Valentine's decor, but I got out what I do have so I can do a little decorating...


This is my Valentine's version of my Scrappy Patchwork Table Runner. I used a light fabric for one of the patchwork squares in each block to create the heart shape.



 I also love my Valentine's patchwork basket. I used the tutorial by Pink Penguin. I've made a lot of these over the past few years and was thinking I might make a few this year with the scraps left over from my table runner--it will make a perfect gift with some cookies and candy inside.




It was fun to make the Patchwork Heart Table Runner and have a quick finish yesterday afternoon

Oh ! So pretty! And I love the pink penguin, just made a zipper pouch from her book! I have always been intimidated to make a bag but love her tutorials!

Very sweet Sherri! I do like the idea of the little baskets for a gift with cookies, etc. in them -- good idea!

I am using the same line of fabric this week too, for a wall hanging, I might need a table runner to match ;)
