a little love

i heart you quilt pattern and textured pillows pattern braided pillow shown
 Well! I do have to say that you guys were cracking me up on the last post with some of the crap your kids have said! WOW!!!! Fantabulous! And thanks for making me laugh!!


So with Valentine's being kind of around the corner I thought I would do a little highlight on my I heart you pattern. 

 This pattern was created with my pink ombre fabric. But you don't have to use it if you don't want to! If you want to buy my pink ombre fabric find it here , and here. I would also check your local quilt stores! I have a little left I'm hoarding, till I can add it again to another fabric line (ahem a little forshadowment!)
It's created using HST (half square triangles.) And a whole heck of a lot of chain piecing. Personally I love chain piecing because I can sit and power through a lot of blocks and feel totally accomplished when it's all said and done.

This quilt comes in two sizes one is 54" x 54" (shown and yes! It totally hangs in my daughter's room when it's not traveling with me to trunk shows and lectures) and a HUGE one of 108" x 108" which would be perfect for snuggling with your loved one (or ones...as is the case with us because our kids end up crawling into bed with us in the mornings...)

And for a limited time I'm offering a 30% off discount on this PDF pattern. Just enter LOVE30 at the check out for instant gratification of downloading the pattern and saving money while doing so. :)

I'm getting ready for my turn on the Vintage Block Revival tour tomorrow. Also I'm working on a couple of free tutorials, a couple new patterns, and a new line for the fall, and a HUGE project. So yes, you'll be hearing from me. :)
Oh and of course I have a few more stories to tell...we'll talk soon

Thanks so much for the Valentine's discount and posting your tutorial links! I'm off to snatch up that quilt pattern! I think it would look adorable in one of my little girls rooms as well!

I love it! It's so perfect for Valenntine's and a sweet girl's room. My daughter would love that in her room, for sure!

Hooray! I asked for and received the fabric to make this quilt for Christmas and have been wanting to order the pattern. Thanks so much! I can't wait to get started!

VERY cute! ...and I just love that scrap-braided pillow! Hmmm...do I think I could finish a valentine project in time?

I did 3 great t-shirts for the kids with your ideas of the painted heart bags. It was cool!!!

Love the heart quilt! I also love the braided pillow in the first photo. Is there a pattern for that?

Thanks!

there's three different kinds of textured pillows, two are shown in this post: the faux pleat, and the braided pillow. the third one is the rosette pillow. :) hope that helps!

I absolutely LOVE this quilt!
I totally copy-cated you and made mine with the pink ombre- it is so beautiful. I just need to quilt it- this will definitely become a family favorite, I already see myself sewing new binding on in about 20 years or so, I better stock up on the binding fabric now!
