My crazy rambling aside, since I started sewing I am slowly starting to get the appeal of Valentine's Day crafts. I love pink and white together, that's really my excuse. So this year, after waffling about maybe making a quilt with V-day colors, I lucked out and saw this easy tutorial at asquaredw and just had to make it. I have plenty of red and pink scraps for this, and from cutting to binding it only took 2 evenings to do.
For the quilting I did a single straight line to trace each heart, and then a small stipple in the white spaces. I think it makes the hearts pop nicely.
I really like it! My only problem now is trying to figure out how to hang it. I've never made a hanging sleeve so I'm hoping to come up with something...uh...creative (jerry-rigged).
So now I guess I can no longer say that I'm the equivalent of a Valentine's Day Ebenezer Scrooge!
