Quilt a Valentine

With the holiday of love and compassion just around the corner, instead of grabbing a Valentine’s Day card and a heart-shaped box of chocolate at your grocery local store, make a trip to your stash and make a gift that will last longer than flowers or candy.

What better way to show that special someone how much you really care, and love them then by making quilting a valentine for them. It’s personal, unique and made just for them by you. Here are some ideas for making a great Valentine’s quilt.

Patriotic Hearts

Approximate fabric requirements are: 1/3 yard white, ¼ yard blue, and 1/3 yard (total) of various red fabrics. You’ll put a ½” white sash between and around the blocks, a ½” blue border, a 2” red border, and bind it in blue. Finished size will be about 23.5” x 28”.
