So after mentioning my two Valentine-ish quilts in Friday’s blog post, I thought I would pull them out of the archive and let them have their day in the spotlight again- since February is a measly 5 days away and all.
This first quilt is one of my favorites because it was mostly made by some friends! We did a friendship heart block swap last year with a quilt group I attend and this was the result. I originally blogged about it last February and you can read it here.
Two of my favorite things about this quilt (besides the personalized hearts made by my friends) are the soft flannel on the back, and the wide ric rac I used as part of the border. It was so easy to add, and I just love the look of it. I had never tried that technique before!
My second Valentine-ish quilt is this one – called Sweet Talk. I made it last year in March and blogged about it once but never showed the finished quilt.
This is made using my Sweet Talk pattern (available for purchase here and here.) It’s my third Sweet Talk quilt that I’ve made, and my most favorite! For this version I used fabrics from last year’s “Surrounded by Love” line from Moda.
Right now it’s hanging in my local quilt shop for the month of February, but I get to stop by and visit it every now and then. So now between my Cupid’s Arrow pillow and my friendship heart quilt on the quilt ladder, my home is starting to feel a bit more ready for February!
