Valentine in January


After working on several quilts (many I have yet to share here), it was nice to work on something a little smaller.  I used to sew bags, clothing, and toys and somewhere in there I got hooked on quilts.  This year I'd like to diversify my sewing a little bit.  Don't get me wrong, I still have several quilts in the queue and will probably keep adding to that list.

For this project, I used Canoe Ridge Creations' patchwork heart block tutorial.  I dived into my scrap bin and pulled out all the pink pieces I could find.  The block had to be pink because, did I mention, June loves pink?  Pink pink pink.  I plan to turn this into a pillow top and give it to her for Valentine's Day.  I'm still deciding how to quilt this.  Any suggestions?

Linking up at Quilt Story, Blossom Heart Quilts, and Freshly Pieced.


  1. cute, love the pink outside and white heart, great idea to reverse the colours!

  2. I am working on one of these cuties for a dear friend of mine. Yours is VERY pretty!!

    Hmmmm....maybe do meandering on the pink squares and outline the heart around and around with embroidery thread
