Happy Valentine's day! (the heart quilts)
Happy Valentine's day!!! Earlier in my years as a quilter, I was just obsessed by hearts. I made dozens of heart quilts, and gave most of them away. I found a few this morning, and thought I would share them with you to celebrate the day of the "HEART"!! Above is my attempt at a color wash heart quilt...twenty years old, or thereabouts.
A little heart quilt, with smaller than one inch hearts on this one...it is hanging in my bathroom, thus the ribbon hanging from it.
A blue hearts quilt!! I was trying to use decorative stitches to define the blocks...my Walmart sewing machine had a grand total of 7 different stitches at that time...
Another one in pink...I tried to put a little flange...pretty uneven but I thought it was purty!!!
Then I made a big heart quilt!! Hand quilted this one in every heart. Maybe I will have a young person in my life that would like this one, one day!!
My precious quilt from Anne Bebbington...please see her blog here!! A gift from her...I love it! She lives in England, and is a wonderful quilter and mother!
Another one...don't know what I was thinking here at all....
Solids!! Echo quilted on my little Walmart machine, so many years ago..
And more and more!! So you can see, I love hearts!! It is a good thing I am a heart nurse...it all seems to fit!!
Have a great day, everyone!! Hope you have a wonderful Valentine's day!!
