I ♥ Valentine's Day


My quilt is called I ♥ Valentine's Day
A little while ago I saw a tutorial on Moda Bake Shop about how to make a small Valentine Heart quilt from a combination of Moda Giddy and Red Bella Basics Charm squares.
I decided to modify it a little and make it myself for Valentine's Day.
I didn't have the red squares, so I used 30cm of Bella Solid red instead.
Then I used the left over Giddy squares, cut in half, for the border.
I added some red rickrack (It can only make a quilt better, right?).
I machine quilted a hearts stipple in the heart, then just straight line outlined the heart.
I used the solid red to bind the quilt.
Very simple, but cute. I can see other applications for this design as a larger quilt, and also smaller squares and hearts units.
Fun! What did you do for Valentines day?
♥ Ann.
