    Be My Valentine Quilt ...

    Happy Valentine's Everyone!!
    I hope you are enjoying your day.
    If you didn't have someone to spoil you ... I hope you did something for yourself!!!

    I never really planned to have a Valentine's quilt. Then one day when I least expected it (at Christmas time!) I stumbled on this fabric .... and a few days later, I went back and bought it! I didn't really get the contrasts right, thus the reasons for the stripes, to help break it all up some.

    It's beautiful. A quilt doesn't have to have a of contrast to be attractive. I do like the stripes though.

    Beautiful quilt.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.

    Words can't describe how I feel about your quilt. I wish it was mine.

    As much as I love quilts, I rarely see one I'd want for myself, but this is one I'd be thrilled to have on my bed! The almost blended colors are so pleasant and soothing, yet beautiful, and the stripes perfect the design.

    This is beautiful and I don't think I would us it for Feb. only. It would make a lovely Christmas quilt as well. Of course I love red so maybe I'd use it all year. LOL
