    A quilted valentine

    My son came for an overnight visit, he had a business meeting. I wanted to send something home for his wife and my two grandsons. I made a batch of cookies, but they turned out awful! So I popped into my sewing room and made this quilted valentine.

    That is beautiful. You can keep this quilted card forever, but you cannot keep cookies. I love your idea.

    What a great quick gift! You did a wonderful job in whipping this up quickly. I am sure it will be on display for years to come each Valentine's day!

    How clever you are. That is really cute. It's nice that they'll have a Valentine to keep forever from grandma. Try my sugar cookie recipe I posted on the recipe section. They are really good and easy to make.Peggy
    Happy quilting to all of my new friends on the quilting board http://pastimesquiltdesign.blogspot.com

    What a neat idea. Will last far longer than the cookies would have too. Great job. Thanks for sharing.
