A Sweet Heart for Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day!

If you've been reading my blog
since last year, you may remember

{These little sweet hearts have been really popular on Pinterest!}

The quilted hearts with ricrac are some of my favorite items
I've ever sewn...

In this post, I shared a new heart in rustic tones,
made with Modern Meadow fabrics from Joel Dewberry.

Now I've created a new version,
using some of my precious Paris Flea Market fabrics,
from the first release.

{I think these prints were my first real fabric "crush".}

I love the sunny yellow colorway...
it's so cheery, even in the heart of winter.

I spent some time creating a patchwork of tiny squares.
Then I quilted a fine crosshatch throughout.
It's more heavily quilted than the ones I made last year.

For the back, I chose a lovely script print,
also in golden yellow.

{For reasons I will never understand, the text prints were not re-released
with the other fabrics from the Paris Flea Market line.}

I KNOW you're going to ask me where I get my labels...
I found mine HERE on Etsy.

{Someday I promise to do an entire post about those little labels.}

I hope you'll find time to enjoy this special day with someone you love!
