"You Are Loved" Valentine Quilt









This little project started with a handkerchief my mother gave me years ago! I used a giant heart-shaped cookie cutter to make an appliqué pattern and then cut a heart out of the hankie and embroidered "Be Mine" on it. Another piece of the hankie became the upper-left-hand corner block of the quilt. This project evolved gradually from the one embroidered heart into a wall quilt! I drew an embroidery design using some Pinterest inspiration for the center square. The setting squares, hanging tabs, and the binding are all made from the same tiny pink floral print. The finished quilt measures  24 ½ inches square.
