Even though I didn't get to sew as much for Kelly's Valentine Sewing Party as I would have liked to, I did, however, manage to get one finished! Woo Hoo!
I stayed up unitl 2:30 this morning sewing the peiced borders on the Valentine quilt I started last weekend.
This quilt is so easy and perfect for using holiday fabrics that you don't want to cut up into tiny little pieces. It's a lap sized quilt which will be perfect for cuddling on the couch watching chick-flicks.
After I looked at it for a while I decided it needed something a little fun added to it. Last week Natalia posted a quilt in the Moda Bakeshop, which I l.o.v.e.d!!! So, I decided to tweek this quilt a little and do this:
It's amazing what a little ric-rac and some fun lettering will do to add some pizzazz.
My kids will probably be the ones to use this the most. And, since I'm getting really good at texting both of them these days, I thought I would applique them the perfect message: Love U! (or is it supposed to be Luv U ?)
Thanks, Kelly, and the rest of the girls, for a fun weekend of Valentine sewing.
Edited: I have linked this post to Amy's "Sew and Tell" Friday link on her blog amylouwho.com. You can go there, too, and see what everyone else has sewn this week!
