This cute little Sweetheart Table Topper is a free tutorial over at Jaybird Quilts. You can follow this link to her free tutorial. I saw the tutorial last year but I never found the time to make it for Valentine's Day. I decided to start early this year and actually get it done in time to display it for the holiday. My son's birthday is February 14 so I make sure and put lots of Valentine's Day decorations out!
I used this ruler to make the topper. I think she also has a smaller ruler you could use to make the topper. Her directions are very clear and these rulers make it quite simple to make.
Here are my hearts all cut out. Actually, each piece is a jewel shape. Put two together, pretty hearts are made! I just used pinks from my stash.
I cut little triangles for the background. Also, from my stash! I recommend trimming off the points from the background triangles. It makes piecing so much easier!
Each topper is made up of 6 blocks. Each block is made up of 3 jewels and 4 background triangles.
