"Friday Night with Friends Valentines Quilt."

Hello,

Friday Night with Friends was held yesterday, with events like this I like to make a little project and get it done. I discovered a quick and easy pattern for a Valentine's Quilt when I followed a link from the Primitive Quilts and Projects Newsletter. I cut out the squares etc on Thursday planning to sew on Friday but the temptation was too hard to resist. I had most of it joined together and Friday saw me finish it off and start the machine quilting.


 Once again I used the heart design, the small one this time.


 With it being a Valentine's quilt I had to throw in a few cherries. Only a few as I only had a very limited amount of the red thread.


I used a blue fabric on the back that has pink roses and for the binding some fabric that has cherries on it.

Thanks Cheryll for hosting the sew in.

Happy days.
Bev C
