Happy Valentine’s Day!

I finished my Conversation Hearts quilt yesterday!



I struggled a bit  with the quilting in the middle.



I have had this piece of fabric in my stash for quite a while and it was perfect for the backing.




I used a double layer of batting on this one. One layer of Pellon 80/20 and a layer of a low loft Pellon poly on top. Glide thread.

Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you get to spend the day with those you love.

    Amazing work, Katy! I shouldn’t be surprised, yet still in awe of your talent.

  2. Everything about this quilt is perfect. Love the colors, and oh, that backing! The quilting is what drew me in – it made my heart melt!

  3. great job! the quilt looks especially fantastic on the snow- it really brings out the beauty in it… we have only frozen mud here- it’s -8 this morning, but only brown as far as the eye can see. makes my hubby happy not to have to plow, but a little bit of white to cover the mess would be nice!

  4. wow wow wow!! You do amazing work!! I love the simplicity of the design and the quilting is just remarkable.
