Happy Valentines' Day!

Today is Valentine's Day.  My sweetie and I decided not give anything but cards this year.  We have a rather romantic trip coming up in just four days which will be our Valentines and Anniversary and about every other occasion!  (Hint:  Aloha!)

Would you like a virtual Valentine's Day quilt show?  I will trot out my most appropriate quilt for Valentines' Day...a painted shadow trapunto wholecloth I made several years ago called "Something Girly."  Also known as "Trouble!"

Here are smaller versions of a painted trapunto quilt.  The first one is "Heart's Delight."

 The next one is "Ring of Peace."  These last two were each donated to a charity auction.

Here is "Second-Hand Rose," made from an embroidered linen skirt I got at the Goodwill thrift store. It has some very shiny Tinzl and lots of flowers and beads.

I had forgotten all about this one.  I made it as a prize for the Pink Artist Project.  It was inspired by an article in Quilting Arts magazine.  The lady who received the prize in the drawing had just buried her husband.  I got the most wonderful letter from her!  Sometimes things are meant to be.

Here is one I made for my granddaughter Lily's room. It's called "Cute as a Lilybug."  There are lots of Swarovski crystals shining on this one.

And here is her quilt on the bed.  It's called "Carolina Lily," of course!

I hope you have a special day with someone you love!
