Valentine's and Red and White Quilts

February 13, 2019

Okay, how stinkin' cute is this quilt??
Seriously. And it was fast and easy to whip up! So much so, I made THREE!
I had a gift exchange recently and it worked out perfectly! I machine quilted them all up at the same time on the same backing which worked out great! Pattern is a freebie called Box of Chocolates from Temecula Quilt Co. here.
The machine quilting pattern, I thought was a great complement to the design. It is called Clamshell Bokkusu. Speaking of machine quilting, I received a few questions regarding it. If you click on any one of the patterns here, all the info on pricing and such comes up. Also, you can find the info under INFO/Quilting services here.

I typically leave the red and white/valentine's decor up through the month of February.
I do not think I'll ever put my red and white snowball quilt away. Thats a year around quilt for sure!! Pattern for snowball quilt that I loosely followed can be found here.

Since after Christmas, I have a mix of spring and red and white.
The Love pillow case is from Amazon and the H pillow is from Kirkland's.
The red and white quilts stay around all year pretty much, I just move them around. :-)
Red and white antique quilts. You can never go wrong there! Look at all those tiny hourglass blocks. I think they finish at 1"!!  And that square in a square block quilt has 2" blocks! I feel fortunate to have stumbled across those quilts!
Even a little nine patch hangs on my front door.
Much as many in the US, Michigan is experiencing all of Winter. I think the girls have spent more time at home than in school since returning from Christmas break. Snow and ice have been nearly a daily occurrence. Still my hydrangeas look good...wink. :-)

  1. Very cute little Valentine quilts, Linda. I made a couple of quilts from this pattern once. And I love the red/white snowball. So classic!
    The quilts on the hearth were wonderful finds! And that is cute to hang a quilt on the door.
    I love seeing you posting again.
    What very hardy hydrangeas. ;)
