"Love is in the Air"
I found this antique looking Valentine fabric a few years ago and being an antique lover, I just couldn't say no to it. Do you ever have that problem when browsing through a quilt shop? Some fabrics just call out to me saying "take me home, take me home." I designed this quilt using the card trick block for the outer edges. My very talented long arm quilter used gold thread to quilt a lacy heart shape with a bow in each card of the block. Check out the close-up picture. I appliqued little hearts in the center with an embroidered message "Love is in the Air". I think red is such a striking color when mixed in varying tones. Happy Valentine's Day.
