We have a fun tutorial on the blog today, courtesy of Julie from Jaybird Quilts – the Sweetheart Table Topper! She used our French Lessons collection by Jack and Lulu (in stores now!) to make this adorable project that you can whip up quickly for Valentine’s Day coming up. Check it out below!

Pro Tip – If you want to fussy cut a striped fabric so that the stripes will match in the middle of the heart, it is best to cut one jewel and then lay it on the fabric strip, right sides together, as shown below. Align the stripes of the cut jewel to the stripes of the fabric strip so that you can cut a mirror image with the 2nd jewel.
This table topper works great to display a cake plate… now I just need the cake!!
It also works well to hold a bunch of candles.
