I "heart" this quilt...

I'm not a huge fan of hearts, but, I love this little heart pattern.
 
 
I used some fat quarters from the "Recipe for Friendship" fabrics by Mary Engelbreit. 
You can see they are from 2007 - but still very cute.

 
The pattern is from the Buggy Barn book, "Gone Crazy". 
I've made it several times - it's easy, fast and fun.
You just layer your fat quarters, iron the freezer paper pattern on top of the stack, cut on the lines,
 

 
shift the pieces,

 
and sew them back together.


 
It was finally a sunny day so I ran outside to snap a few photos.....love my little birdhouse in our tree.

 
 
I used a cream chenille on the back.....so soft.
 
 
I quilted a simple stipple all over and curvy outlined inside the hearts.


Finished just in time to snuggle under!
Do you have plans for Valentine's Day?
