2024 - 2 - To my quilting Valentines

Dear friend of KISSed Quilts, 

My favorite month--why? I got married on Valentine's Day, 15 years ago! WOW!

Here is the quilt I designed while on our honeymoon in Hawaii. I collected several of the fabrics during that trip too.

This started as a Storm at Seam with 3 hearts ...and then while in Hawaii it seemed appropriate to add a turtle. When my hubby said he'd like it to be his 'couch quilt' it became necessary to make it even larger so the large border using Hawaiian prints helped! This is a great celebration quilt of our love and I'm considering entering it into the Celebrations of Life exhibit at the Houston Festival this year.

Special display now in the shop includes many Valentine or Galentine themed projects and novelty items. Want some help creating a special project? Just ask!

This was a super fun Taylor Swift clip made into a quilting themed short (click to watch on my YouTube channel) that I shared as a story on IG ....and I've got Chief's color fabrics ready for you!

Quilt-a-long from Patterns by Jen - 2024 Monthly Color Challenge

I'll be the featured blogger in March, so please follow along. Get a free 12" block each month. I plan to post the block I make each month and then will show the setting at the end of the year. If interested in a bundle of fabrics that will work (moda Grunge or Northcott Toscana) --just respond to this email and we'll get it put together. There are options to consider -- light/dark color blocks or a single background and color for each block. Her color inspiration this year is tropical fish like seen in this picture. All but one block will work with 1/4 yd for each color. So, let's discuss your thoughts and I can put together just the right bundle of fabric for you.

So far: January - Green and February - Orange


Here are the fabrics that I have pulled --note a 'water' like background (available in my widebacks) and then some scraps of batiks that I have. So there is an other idea -- I could also pull batiks from the shop if you're interested in using them.

6 1/2" square ruler recommended - EeziGrip style available here
