Valentine's Day Warmth :-)

When I was digging, diving and unpacking one of my stored boxes of fabric I discovered this delightful pile of fat quarters! Aren't they cute? I've never made a quilt in honor of Valentine's Day - it's time to cut up these fat quarters and produce a little bit of Valentine's Day warmth! I know I have some inner/outer border, backing and binding fabric to match - hmmmm wonder where that pile is???? It's time to do a little more digging. LOL

I hope you did something today to make your heart smile!

In Friendship!

Now those are cute fq's, son't think I've seen anything like them before. I finished my fist little wall hanging for the year, just got in under the wire (before 12 midnight).

I love that collection of fat quarters. I am anxious to see what you do with them as I have been thinking that I need a Valentine's Day quilt as well!

Looks like a fun bunch of valentine fabrics. I've always wanted to make a quilt for valentines but never got a round to doing it. This year I have plans for a punchneedle valentines piece.

Those are such a cute set of fat quarters. How long have you had them? It is so nice to find fabric like that - I bet it is no longer in production. Have fun with them!!

I am so glad that you are going to do and enjoy the things that make you happy - and blogging makes you happy. I enjoy reading your blog - whether you talk about quilting or something else.

Have a wonderful 2008!!

I just found you through another blog and wanted to say Hi! I am a new quilter and sewer having finished one twirl skirt and quilt since the fall! I am starting my next project (quilt for my little one and another twirl skirt) as well as making lots of other fun things. Just wanted to say hi and tell you how beautiful your quilts are!

Those are some cute fabrics. I am on the same thought train as you are, never made a quilt for Valentines Day & have been going through my fabric stash & quilt books. Can't wait to see what you make with those cute FQs. Happy New Year!

I love the valentines fabrics. Very pretty. Isn't fun when we find things we forgot we had. I, too, was thinking that I should work on that Valentines quilt I started last year!

Glad to hear that you are having fun digging through your boxes - that collection of valentine fabrics was a "sweet" find! Even if you don't "make" something out of it right away, it sure is pretty just to look at!

Cheers!
