With Valentine's Day coming up this week, I wanted a project that could decorate our new home for the holiday. I had seen this tutorial on Diary of a Quilter, and had filed it away as a project I'd like to try soon.
As I was cleaning my craft room, I came across a charm pack of Valentine's fabric, and had some quilter's linen floating around I had purchased a while ago. Add just a little bit of Kona White and some dark gray floss, and it was a pretty quick project.
Since you could see through the white, and I didn't want any spare threads to show, I ended up quilting the front panel. I did a meandering FMQ stitch on the white and then tried some litle loops with hearts thrown in on the tan linen. Had never done hearts before and while they've got a long way to go - I was happy with the outcome. It gave me some more confidence in trying some new FMQ patterns. (I think stars will be tried for the next project!)
Wishing everyone a very Happy Valentine's Day. Hope it's sweet!
