Seeking Valentine Inspiration

As far as home decor goes, snowflake season is turning to flurries, and a sea of red hearts are taking over!

The above is a panel from years ago, with added borders. What I love about this panel is it has snowflakes made from hearts - how awesome is that?? A perfect bridge from January to February!

Can you believe Valentine's Day is just four weeks away? Which means that if there's going to be any new heart projects, then I need to get moving!

Until the next project is complete, I'm happy to decorate my home with these heart themed items:

You might think, Wow, that's a lot of table runners! Do I actually use them all? Well, yes, I do! Between counters, hutches, coffee tables, entryway tables, and of course, the dinner table, I do display all of them at once. And I still have room for more!

So, yesterday, I pulled out all of my heart fabric stash,


valentine heart fabric for quilting

seeking inspiration for a new Valentine creation. I do have a vision in mind, but not sure if it will use any of this fabric. So, today, I'll play and see if my idea works - you know I'll keep you posted!

Happy Quilting!

  1. You have me singing "love is in the air." :) All of these are beautiful! Just your quilting is enough to make my heart go pitter patter and leave me feeling a bit weak in the knees. I can't wait to see what you come up with for this year.

    1. That song is going through my mind too! I better getting going on this, cause four weeks is not very long for heart stuff.

  3. So many pretty runners! I don't have much of anything in the way of Valentine's decor, especially in the way of quilts. You've definitely given me some inspiration! Looking forward to seeing what you create!

    1. Thanks Wendy! I certainly hope that what's in my head works out. Going to be along the improv theme.

  4. Hi Susan,
    I'm glad winter is all downhill for you, but we usually get the most snow in February! Wrong! Anyway, love all of your tempting table runners. I just love red and white together - can't wait to see what you come up with to inspire us. ~smile~ Roseanne
