You’ll be subtly sending hugs and kisses to everyone you entertain with these whimsical coasters (pictured above)! This easy-to-follow pattern makes a total of 10 coasters, so it’s a perfect project to break up into several Valentine gifts or to add a little bit of sugar and spice to your home décor. If you want to use these all year round, try using a diverse group of colors in a variety of solids, polka dotted, and striped fabrics.
White Diamonds Table Runner Pattern
by Deborah Grifka
As contemporary quilted table runner patterns go, this one is a gem! This striking table runner is a lovely alternative to that elusive diamond tennis bracelet. Plus, everyone seated around your table is sure to fall in love with its simple, yet vibrant design. Subtly convey the spirit of Valentine’s Day by using a pink or red background. If you want to mimic the scintillation of light found in a diamond gemstone, audition small colorful patterns.
Hearts and Flowers Cushion Pattern
by Helen Philipps
Create this adorable patchwork pillow by pairing a mix of colorful solids and floral prints with a vibrant white. To add the appliqué hearts simply use a template or cut them free-hand and then attach with iron-on interfacing. For a sweet surprise close the envelope-style pillow back with heart-shaped buttons.
Cute as a Button Pillow Pattern

These delightful pillows are just the thing to tell your loved ones you think they are cute as a button! Using fusible appliqué, this fresh button design works up quickly creating a lovely pillow perfect for children and grown-ups alike. To pump up the Valentine potential of this pillow try creating red or pink buttons over a white-on-white floral or heart print.
