When I was tidying up the sewing room after all the Christmas projects I came across a couple of quilts that I pieced last year using some fat quarter packs of Valentine’s Day fabric. I’m not a big fan of pink quilts and these are REALLY pink so I know why they were never finished. Also, the tops are pretty ho-hum and boring.
This one I’m calling Valentine Boxes.
After naming it I started thinking about the valentine boxes we made in elementary school. A few days before Valentine’s Day we would bring in shoe boxes and spend some time decorating them with construction paper, crepe paper and doily hearts. I remember how fun it was to bring our boxes home on Valentine’s Day and open all the cards.
So-o-o-o, I’m going to borrow that idea and make this a fun quilt! First I’ll press it and quilt it with an easy edge-to-edge design. Then I’ll some hearts and lace on top and add a little bling. Now I’m excited to start working on it again!
