Valentine Hearts

I made a Valentine banner for my dining room. I checked out different designs online and put together my own pattern. I made layered hearts on different white backgrounds and sliced them and resewed them.

I used different decorative stitches on my machine to applique the hearts. I'm not good at quilting so I just stitched in the ditch around the hearts and border. In the white spaces, I quilted a varitety of hearts.

I used the leftover scraps to make a small table runner for the dining room table. We have glass on our wooden table so our table runner doubles as a large hot pad for hot dishes. I lined it with a layer of Warm and Natural and a layer of Insul-brite.

Nice job! What did you do with the fourth heart? The back of the runner?

I love slice and dice. It turned out really cute.
