Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! I hope you know how I feel about you all:


I had to show this quilt specifically for Kim, who sent me some cute red and white cupid fabric and seemed to think I'd never done a more traditional kind of love quilt. That one above is about as traditional as I get. (And if I were doing it now, boy, would there be more contrast - good to know I've learned a few things along the way).  Have to admit though, this is more my style than the monochrome:


It's awfully good to have my sweetie home for Valentine's. Not that we celebrate or do anything in particular. I don't even have these quilts up on the wall - I haven't gotten Christmas put away yet.

Meanwhile this is what is on my design wall:


Hee hee hee. Love it. The most recent batch of blocks added some more color to the mix, including  yellow and a whee hint of purple. Looking amazing, isn't it?

The beating hearts quilt is a favorite of mine, love it. Hope you're healing! Can't imagine having two knees worked on at once.

Yes! Those Bah Humbugs are looking fantastic. Love your love quilts too. Happy V-day! We're watching Ken Jennings vs. Watson, the IBM computer, on Jeopardy. Round 1 tonight; rounds 2 and 3 tomorrow and Wednesday.

This is a good reminder and motivator for me...finish up bugs and get them in the mail. Pronto.

Chris said...

Bah Humbug is really coming together nicely. I love some of the new letters in this quilt top. Hope you are healing up quickly.

Lynda said...

Thanks for the love - you can never have too much! Also hanks for the glimpse of the bah humbug blocks. I had a bit of difficulty finding mine, which was such a relief, as I thought it would stand out and ruin the mix. Phew!
