Hugs and Kisses...

...and a happy Valentine's Day to you!
I'm so glad to have you over
on my day in the sweetest hop of the year

A big hug to Mdm. Samm of Sew Wee Quilt
and Soma of  Whims and Fancies for hosting this event
and darling paper piecing pattern.

Today, you'll find many beautiful and
very inspiring projects created by these ladies:

Lady Soma
Whims and Fancies

Lady Laura Ann

Lady Doris
Quilting Queen Online

Lady Rexie
Crow Calling Woman

Lady Shari

Lady Cherry ... you are here!

So I started with the idea of making a runner
using 2 sets of Soma's paper pieced XOs and the heart...
Then mid-way through my runner
I decided I wanted to use more of the fabrics in the layer cake
I used to make the XOXO,
which has been in my stash for a few years
begging to be used, lol!
And since I love chevrons,
I made two rows of easy chevrons with 1/2-square triangles
 oh, it just went so fast... loved it!
Of course, I love open spaces for lots of quilting,
so I added a little bit of white fabric,
and this is what my "improvised" project finished as...

I still hadn't used the little heart!
well, how about a little poem around the heart,
a few borders,
a little quilting...
the results where a perfect
Valentine's card for my sweetheart! 

I have a little Valentine's Treat for one of you too...
a $20 gift certificate to use in my website
To enter, leave a sweet little comment
and I'll choose a winner Thursday, February 20th.
