Join us for a Valentine’s Day Trunk Show, right here on our blog. Sit back, relax, and feel the love. We’ve gathered all of our favorite quilts and stitcheries for a Valentine’s Day gathering. These would all fit right in for a ladies’ luncheon or tea.
Our chocolate and dessert pincushions look good enough to eat. These were all made with wool felt and embellishments.
A box of chocolates contains tiny truffle delicacies, perfect for holding pins.
This heart quilt started out with the heart centers from a stack-and-whack pattern. We added the borders and sashing to make the quilt bigger, fill it out a little bit more, and tie the colors together. It was then hand quilted in the primitive style with embroidery floss.This scrappy heart mosaic wall hanging was made by Rania of our Creative Team. She used a fusible grid for the foundation and Valentine squares in lights and darks to make up the design. We love the effect!
The Happy Heart wall hanging was made a long time ago using antique fabrics and some reproduction prints. The hearts are fused on a muslin background and finished by hand with a blanket stitch. It was also hand quilted.
Onto the red and black color themes. You’ll notice our crazy quilt heart pincushion nestled in with the rest.This is the February calendar block from Nancy Halvorsen’s Art to Heart Calendar Quilts and Stitcheries book. We added the beading to the angel’s halo for an added touch of dimension.
Our Valentine Cards Quilt was made years ago. It combines hearts with square-in-a-square blocks on alternate rows. One interesting thing about this quilt is that the whites didn’t match when it was done, so then we used a tea stain to overdye the entire quilt. It gave it a vintage look and harmonized the colors.
