One of my favorite patterns right now is my Flying Home Quilt. I originally designed it to be a group guild project to gift to our president who was stepping down. Her favorite colors are blue and teal and we did a low volume background. It turned out really beautiful!
I had people asking me about a pattern and I loved it, too, so I decided to go ahead and write the pattern and make a Christmas themed quilt. I love how it turned out, don’t you? I had it folded in half across the back of the couch over Christmas and it looked so nice and festive and made me happy every time I walked into the room.
When it was time to pack up Christmas, I was bummed to put this quilt up. It is just so pretty! So I decided to make one for Valentine’s Day and it goes perfectly with all my Valentine’s Day Pillows of the Month! But I’m thinking I’ll need to make one more to keep out all year long. It uses no waste flying geese and sews up in a day. I made this Valentine quilt over a weekend.
You can, too, and the pattern is 30% off all this month!
I did all-over swirls, hearts, and double hearts on my Janome 8900 for the quilting design. It is one of my favorites to do. I also did my binding by machine this time, attaching it in the back, folding it over to the front, and then I used a decorative stitch to finish sewing my binding on.
I also shared on Instagram recently that when I designed my Christmas Cards quilt to send into magazines in the hopes of getting published, I designed it as Christmas Cards and as Love Notes. The magazine wanted the Christmas theme so that’s what I made. However, I still had these designs so I thought I’d share them. They are so cute! You can find the pattern here. I’ve added this to my ToDo list for next year.
If you’re looking for something a little quicker, my Valentine Pillows are just the thing: three pillow patterns (or 16″ quilt blocks if you’d rather).
Finally, I made these adorable little bags. They are really quick to make and perfect for your Valentine’s gifts. You can find the tutorial here.
