Happy Valentine’s Day

First I thought I would share the snow status.  They are saying on the news that we could get another couple of inches in the morning.  I hope they are wrong.

Here is the yard this morning.

and here it is this afternoon.

Almost all gone.

My sister Robin posted a few pictures of her heart quilts and they reminded me that I have one.  I stole a photo of Robin’s off her blog so it is first.

Robin's Heart Quilt 0210

Robin and I frequently make quilts that are “exactly alike only different”.  This quilt is a good example of that.  First she made hers and told me about it.  I decided to make one like it and here is mine.

As you can see, my fabrics are much darker than hers.  I really like this quilt.  It is from a pattern by Jackie Robinson and the heart is made from 3D prairie points.  Here is a close-up of the pieces.

I tried to teach this quilt a long time ago at Tiny Stitches but no one signed up.  I think it is because it looks like a difficult quilt to make but it is not – it is very easy but it is hard to convince anyone of that.

Happy Valentine’s day to everyone.



  1. I also tried teaching it years ago but I think I had 1 person sign up. However, several from my friendship group did an exchange and made it or at least started it. I love the quilt.

  2. I love to see "similar but different" quilts!

    Once I realized that 2 twins use more fabrics than 1 queen, my UFO pile grew. (I have since rearranged those charms once again...)


I would love to hear from you. Make sure I have a way to contact you if you have a question.
