And Valentines Day is fast approaching. I love looking forward to all of the holidays, especially the ones that do not have so much hype connected with them. I've pulled out a few quilts to decorate for this time of year.
You can see the helpful hands of my most talented quilt holder.....:-)
This is a quilt I made a few years back which was in a Needle Love Book. It is cotton needle turned applique on a raw silk background. I'm always so happy to have it in my quilt stash.
There are a few little wool touches.
I love this border detail.
I pieced this heart quilt a few years ago at the quilt retreat at Bryce Canyon, the one where I will be going to on Tuesday of this next week. I wish I could remember what book it comes from so that I might give credit......if anyone knows, help us out please.
A closer look.
And here it is on my bench with one of my favorite pillows made by my friend Kerry Green. I always have it out for Christmas, but find any excuse possible to leave it out.......May Angels Keep Thee in all Thy Ways....is the verse on the pillow.
A heart made from wood....and adorned with buttons.
This heart pillow was in the same Needle Love Book that the first quilt was from.
