Valentine's Day Table Topper

I started doing these table toppers Christmas of 2006. I had some extra Christmas blocks I got from a swap with my online quilting group and didn't know what to do with them. I was invited to a friend of a friend's house for Christmas Eve dinner and didn't know what to take so I used one of the blocks and cut it into a Octagon and created a Table Topper. It looked pretty good so I made a few more. Now I use them for gifts all the time. I made one that was a fall design on one side and Christmas on the other. I gave that to the leader of a faith sharing group I belong to. I made the purple snowflake table topper for a good friend. It's bigger than most. The latest is a Valentine's Day version that will be a door prize for a coffee group get together the end of January. It's smaller than most. The friend who got the snowflake liked the Valentine's Day one so much she wanted to buy it. I had to tell her no -- I would never know how much to charge. I have a round dining room table and these look great on the lazy susan in the center. I want to make one for every holiday. I've bought a bit of themed fabric, now I just have to do the sewing. I'm hoping to get my own Valentine's Day Table Topper made up this weekend.

There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity
under heaven. A time to be
born and a time to die. A
time to plant and a time to
harvest. A time to kill and
a time to heal. A time to
tear down and a time to
rebuild. A time to cry and
a time to laugh. A time to
grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones
and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a
time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose.
A time to keep and a time to
throw away. A time to tear
and a time to mend. A time
to be quiet and a time to
speak up. A time to love
and a time to hate. A time
for war and a time for peace.
