Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! So I have a new found love for pre-printed quilt panels. The reason…I love to use them on my front porch. I love to hang quilts out there, but unfortunately because they are exposed to the elements (as you can see from the snow on my hydrangeas), it takes a toll on their appearance.
Hence, a quilt panel is perfect! They are cute and inexpensive. Typically I add a border, quilt it up, binding, hanging sleeve and viola…I have an almost instant quilt that I can decorate with and it won’t break my heart if it suffers from the outdoor elements!
Love Grows panel is from Deb Strain’s line of Love Grows line of fabric from Moda. Perfect for February.
I machine quilted the pattern hearts and flowers. Normally, I am not a big quilted hearts and flowers quilting kind of gal, but it just matched this perfect! I used another leftover Moda fabric in the border from one of Alyssa’s quilts and a leftover backing from another quilt for the backing.
I used Innovatech Thread on the top…my new favorite, Magna-Glide prewound magnetic bobbins and Hobbs 80/20 batting.
In honor of Valentine’s Day, I am offering $14 off any order of rulers, templates or DVDs of $75 or more by using the code HEARTS on my website here. *Offer excludes machine quilting as that is already on special. Discount good through Feb. 17.
I think I have blogged more in 2019, than I did the last few years. Cheers everyone!
