Be My Valentine - This quilt uses the 13-Square foundation from "Miniatures in Minutes" (published by C&T Publishing). The Quilt Layout Diagram can be downloaded from my website (http://terriesandelin.com)
Hugs and Kisses - This was made for my new daughter. I found these beautiful embroidery animal designs for Valentine's day and had to mix it with the fun fabric that was available. It was my first attempt at applique and I was happy with the outcome.
Valentine Quilt for Bernadine - A Valentine Wall Quilt for my 94 1/2-year-old Mother. The Ruffled Roses center is embellished by adding parts of a crocheted antimacassar made by Bernadine's mother, Mona Thompson (1892-1992).
My Valentine - I cut all the pieces as directed in the Super Simple Fat Quarters book by Lynda Milligan and Nancy Smith, then I just played, putting them together in different ways, not really in accordance with the patterns. The piece in the center was machine embroidered by my Mother-in-Law. :-)
Heartz - My mom brought this project with her as a mother daugher project to my home in CA during 2006. The project made at least 3 round trips journeys from Seattle to the Bay Area. We ended up with 3 quilts; 1 pink (I LOVE PINK), 1 red, & 1 mixed. I was able to enjoy the finished product just in time for Valentine's Day this year! Quilted on my moms long arm, for pictures check out http://community.webshots.com/user/sharonsseams2b.
California Rattler - I started making this as a study in color - the cool colors with the dark of night nad the warms against the white of day. It took on a life ot its own and wnded up jsut being fun.
