Sew and Tell Friday

It's time for another Sew and Tell Friday.  I am excited to say that my finish for this week is...
(drumroll please)
My Valentine quilt

that I have talked about for the past 2 weeks that you're probably sick of seeing.

The little last minute changes I made before I gave it to Terry to be quilted is that I added two more rows
of ric-rac.  It just sort of evened things out and made the quilt not look quite so bottom heavy.  If it were only that easy in real life to make my body not look so bottom heavy. I could wrap ric rac around my head to distract from the bottom half.  Hey, that may not be a bad idea!     I digress.

Terry did a beautiful job quilitng it, as always.  There are feathers, swirls, and who know what else that she free hands.  Each little section is a different quilting design.  And I love that she changes thread colors.  Gone are the days of white thread all over my quilts (thanks to Judy and Terry).


It's all ready to be snuggled up by the kids.  It looks sweet in it's wooden quilt holder.  

I was trying to figure out what to name the quilt.  I thought about Love Notes, but then I thought about
"Text Messages"  since that's the reason for the "love u!".  What do you think?

Be sure to check out Amy's blog to see what everyone else has finished this week for "Sew and Tell Friday".  I'm always amazed at how much people get finished.  To be honest, I really should start something called
"Say It Ain't Sewn Wednesday".  I would have something every week to show for sure!  

I'll be back this weekend with my "hope I get them finished this month" projects for the Charming Girls' Quilt Club. 

I'm late to Camp Sloanie.  I could say that the 1-2feet (can you imagine!?) of snow that Pat is getting is the reason, but  
she will blow the whistle at me on that one!  

Have a great weekend, everyone.  Go Saints!! or as us Louisianian's would write Geaux Saints! 



  1. A sweet valentine quilt and I think aptly named too. A great finish for you this week!!

  2. I love your Valentine's Day quilt! So cute!

  3. The quilt turned out great! I like the name, too.
    I'm also late to Camp Sloanie but better than never, right?

  4. Perfect for Valentine's Day! I love the addition of the words!

  5. This quilt turned out great--I like text messages. You could do a special Wed for WIPS, but I would great depressed because I would have to choose which one to show, unlike Fridays, when I have to scramble to have something to show :) The life of a quilter . . .

  6. Congratulations on getting it finished and ready for snuggling. My 4 yo son loves making cubby houses with my quilts.

  7. What a wonderful quilt. Very cozy looking, gorgeous colors!

  8. This is adorable! I'm all about the rick rack--going to buy about 20 rolls for myself (LOL).
