Happy Valentine’s Day!

IMG_2032
I almost forgot to hang my Valentine quilt! Pardon the wrinkle. I made this a number of years ago. The pattern came from American Patchwork and Quilting. Shocking that I followed a pattern, right? Except that this was supposed to be applique, not red work, and I think I changed the setting as well. I can never leave anything alone!

Have a great day everyone!

    Yes! We should always add our own creativity to our projects.
    To avoid permanent creases, I roll my quilts on the long tubes from home decor fabric. given free by my local fabric and craft store. Another quilter I know recommends folding quilts on the bias, never the straight of ggrain.
    Happy Valentine’s!

    I’ve never tried Red Work, but I do love how it comes out! This is lovely and it’s great that you made it your own my ‘tweaking’ the pattern.

    I know of a quilter that stores her quilts on swimming pool noodles that you can buy at the dollar store. I think she also uses a fabric sleeve on the noodle so it doesn’t touch her quilt.

  8. Really pretty, Katy! It is almost impossible to leave things alone, isn’t it? 🙂
