    Looking for table runner pattern (valentine)

    I want to make a table runner for valentines day out of the scraps I have. Any suggestions? Thanks

    They had a cute tutorial on Moda Bakeshop the other day called Hearts Galore - not from scraps, but you could improvise. I saved this one for my files! I don't know how to make this link "live" so you will have to copy and paste! Meghan

    Look up a premative heart pattern. Very simple and each heart could be a different fabric.

    I found the picture on Pinterest.
    this is the blog http://myquiltdiary.blogspot.com/
    I am making a draft of it as I type. It is really simple, just squares and a few hst and some applique.I am trying to figure out what size to make the squares, because I have a really big table.I am also trying to see what it would look like as a square table topper with 4 hearts.........I love to do this, find something i like and put my own spin on it

    I would not know how to begin to give instructions..lol
    I just look at the picture, break it down by components and draw it on graph paper. from there I decide what size the squares and hst need to be. here is my rough draft. colored pencils can be your friend
    I tried to send this to you in a PM but it would not let me upload the pic.
    you could cut out the squares at 2.5 (finished 2") and it would give you a runner about 20/46
    I be glad to help you along anytime

    I don't have this pattern just a picture. I made my own graph .

    I had a gal send me some hearts (for charity) she had simply just cut them out after she had sewn a bunch of random pink square scraps together. I stabilized them by sewing a light-weight interfacing to the heart (rst). After carefully slitting the middle of the interfacing, I then turned them right side out pressed them and appliqued them onto squares with a simple hem stitch to the edges. They turned out really nice! I will find the link to the runner I made with them for the auction.

    Here is the link...
