Good Morning, Quilters!
January is swirling by and St. Valentines Day is just around the corner!
Today we have a little pink and yellow confection to add to your sweetheart’s quilt!
Begin by drawing three lines, equidistant apart. The lines will help keep our quilting straight. Use the lines to eyeball proportions–adjusting above and below the lines.
Begin stitching on the bottom line. Stitch on the line a short, wavy line. Stitch a slightly diagonal line up and to the left, jog out a few stitches, then stitch a parallel line.
Stitch two narrow rectangles, ending on the bottom.
Stitch under the pot from right to left and closely echo stitch the pot-ending on the top in the middle.
Add a short stem with two leaves.
Complete the leaves and add a long stem.
From the top of the line, add a curved line, tapering on the bottom. Taper up and round to complete a heart shape.
Add a row of Valentine Flowers to a border or a single motif in the center of a block.
Or add a different flower to your flower pot!
What about YOU?
Do YOU have a special Valentine?
We’d LOVE to hear!
