    Heart Table Topper as a gift

    One of our friends worked on my crafting table on a Sunday afternoon taking time away from his family, so my husband suggested I make them a quilted gift as a thank you to show my appreciation. The husband is not going to be thrilled with this table topper, but his wife will, and in turn, make everyone happy. The colors are pink, not purple. My camera skews the colors.

    Notes on alterations: I trimmed the curves of the scallops down a little. When I put the binding on, the scallops curved upward. With the decrease of the curve, it lays pretty flat. I usually make a double layer on the binding, but this one worked better with a single layer. (LOL - yes I made a bias binding. )

    I am so thankful for all those who share projects and either give instruction or provide the website where to find the instructions. Here is the direct link to this table topper:

    It's beautiful and you did a fabulous job. And you might well be surprised when the husband falls in love with it too. A lot of guys can really appreciate such art and quality work. Thank you for sharing.
