Modern Celebration of Valentine's Day Quilt Done!

Following along with Quilting is More Fun Than Housework/Cynthia Brunz's I Scrap-A-Palooza Challenge, this quilt was made with scraps and older stash. Love, love using up fabric that at best was no longer an interest to me. If someone had told me I had enough fabric to pull together a Valentine's quilt I wouldn't have believed it was possible. This is such a nice pattern where there is no concern of matching seams.

Finally a nice day to take a snapshot outside. And the picture made me see my blooper - after it is totally completed! Argh Argh!!

Did you catch it?

Each row is quilted with hearts and curly cue vines.  The strips are feather stitched along the seam lines in a medium blue thread.


I had plenty of this ticking like fabric that has hearts ~ again some old stash that is getting used up!

Did you notice that the binding also has hearts on it too? The binding is hand stitched on the backside.

It kept my hands busy while spending time with hubby since it was his birthday yesterday. He didn't want to go out leaving Miss Cassie, our Lhasa Apso who had major surgery this past Tuesday,  home alone. Which by the way she is making up for those 4 days she hadn't eaten and is galloping down the hallway!   

Quilting is more fun than Housework

Don't forget to stop by Quilting is more fun than Housework's blog to see the latest quilt-a-long scrappy quilt! The quilt design is fast, easy and such a great looking scrappy quilt!  Go here to see it. Which means I better get busy to catch up with her newest QAL but first I need to finish a baseball quilt today!

Linking up with:

Thank you for visiting and wishing you a great sewing or quilting day!

  1. Joanie, your quilt looks amazing! I love how you laid out your colors in columns...brilliant! I will be "borrowing" this idea for a future quilt. Thanks for joining in the Scrap-A-Palooza fun! Doesn't it feel good to use up that older fabric to make room for new?

  2. The blooper isn't jumping out at me, so it can't be that bad! The quilt looks great. Hooray for a finish and for using up older stash.
