    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. )

    Roberta shared the link to this Valentine table topper under the Links and Resources category here on the QB.

    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:

    That's a beautiful thank you gift. I'm sure your friend will appreciate it because he also does craft type work and knows the effort that goes into a handmade item.

    It's beautiful. I'm sure they will love it.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.
