Valentine Projects

While I was in AZ on my vacation, I picked up a few Valentine’s Day fabrics from Joann to add to my stash.  I find Joann fabrics are not the same quality as the quilt shop fabric, but for a seasonal project that won’t get much wear they are perfect.  When you go into the stores now all you see are Valentine-themed chocolates and decorations so I decided to dig out the Valentine fabric and work on some projects.

These projects are still flimsies and they are remaining on my design wall until I get them quilted.  The smaller octagon is made from 5 x 3″ strips of fabric (finished topper:  25″ across) and the larger octagon is made from 6 x 3″ strips of fabric(finished topper:  30″ across).  Because the smaller table topper took less fabric, I had quite a bit of the leftover strata.  I decided to piece the leftovers together into the rectangle you see in the picture.  I am not sure if I will just quilt this the way it is or if I will add something more to it.
