Happy Valentines Day !!! and a New Quilt project

                                                     Are you ready for Valentines Day ?

As you know I have this very large grapevine wreath on my front porch that I decorate for all of the holidays. I found this heart with berries wreath in a little shop in town when I went for my hair appointment .
  It was love at first sight when I saw this heart and knew it would just be perfect hanging in my wreath.
                                           I used a piece of Urban Cowgirl fabric to hang it

  I think I might keep this out for Spring..................

 I made this scrappy Churn dash quilt top with the new line of First Crush fabric by Sweetwater
                                           It measures 21" x 21" . I do not think I will be able to quilt this before        Valentines Day but a least I can have it for next year ;-)

Speaking of Urban Cowgirl fabric.   I have been hoarding this fabric for quite a few years and just found the perfect quilt project that I feel really shows the fabric off well.
It is called Prairie Flowers and it is a free pattern at the Missouri Quilt Company sight here .

As you can see it will have a sashing and corner stones when I am done with it and I am still playing with the blocks before  I start sewing on my washings and cornerstones.

Wishing everyone a Very Happy Valentines Day !!!



  1. Love the heart wreath. What a good find.

  2. Your little berry heart is the perfect addition to your wreath! I'd seen the new Sweetwater line. I like what you did with it, as well as, what you did with the urban cowgirl. The Missouri Quilt Co. has some wonderful free patterns. Have fun.

  3. Such a sweet berry heart for your wreath!
    Your little Churn Dash quilt turned out darling and your Urban Cowgirl is looking beautiful!
