Be My Valentine

I did start a new project. But you knew I would didn't you?

Last year I toyed with the idea of making a Valentine table runner or something along that line. Since I didn't start thinking about it until around February 16th I wasn't in a hurry to make it but I did get a few Valentine related fabrics on sale.

So I knew I wanted to make something but what? I went through a bunch of magazines and books trying to find something - nothing that shook my shoes as my friend Terri would say. Started checking blogs, but not to much Valentine stuff out yet, must not be close enough to the holiday. But I read where someone had done a Google search on Valentine quilt patterns and found a few things...hmmm, not a bad idea. I found Sandi's blog Piecemeal Quilts, she has free paper pieced heart patterns...hmmm, that had possibilities. So last night (more like early this morning) I finished piecing all of the hearts. I sashed them and added a pop border this evening. I plan on adding three borders of 2 inch squares.


I still have a bit of the fabrics left over so I may make another small table topper...hmmm, might have to do another Google search.
