Celebrating Love

Happy Valentine's Day!
I couldn't resist posting the few things I've made with a heart theme.

This little pillow....a simple old-fashioned redwork embroidery.....

and a raggedy hearts wall quilt.

I bet many of you have made this one, too.It's done in the same way as the Bull's Eye quilt I posted here except with heart shapes instead of circles. It goes much faster as a group project as you get a great variety of red prints. Machine applique a large red heart on a neutral background (raw edge) Cut into fourths and re-assemble for the scrappy look. Wash and dry it - the raw edges fluff up nicely.

Potholder from an extra block

There is a Facebook page called Quilts-Vintage and Antique. Many beautiful antique quilts with heart motifs have been posted over the last few days. If you are interested, visit the site here.

Tell someone you love them today!
