February the Month for Valentines

Standard

February is the month for Valentines, and here is a quilt we did late last year. It was a shoebox shuffle, some of  you may know what that means. Each member of a quilt group puts together a shoebox with patch patterns, fabrics and designs and then swap around for a few months. This way everyone gets to make a patch, the shoebox eventually returning to the owner to put together.  A nice touch is when a book is added for the quilters to put notes, comments, weather reports etc., and these make wonderful reading as time goes by.

This single size quilt was simply quilted with a freehand meander and hearts, only through the white open areas, not crossing the appliqués. Very pretty.
