Are you thinking about gifts for Valentines’ Day?

I always enjoy making projects for Valentine’s Day, I think it is because I love the color red so much.

Today I am sharing 10 free Valentine quilt tutorials that I have done over the years.

  11. Red is such a lively color and your Valentine projects are beautiful. Since I am not a quilter I can honestly say I have made some of those fabric boxes and given them as gifts with goodies inside. Happy HeArts and Valentine’s to YOU Connie Dear…<3

  12. So many beautiful things to make for Valentines. I’ve made that red string table runner back in 2012. Hope to use another of your ideas this year.

    Hello Connie; Sorry that you missed Sadie’s haircut appointment. I am in the process of giving my poodle Mr. Shakes, his haircut. He really looks funny right now, all legs but one are shortened and so I call him Mr. Lopsided. He just cocks his head at me. LOL. Sadie always looks beautiful though! It is kind of sad, but I have not been into Valentines for many years. Yet, your Valentines Table Runner really caught my attention. The large stars with the hearts are so perfectly spaced, in my opinion and in yours also as you designed it LOL. I really do think that I will make this for my Mother this year. Thank you for sharing all of your great patterns and I look forward to seeing more everyday! Have a fantastic day!

  14. I have always enjoyed your Valentine projects. Thanks for the links.

  15. Thank you for reminding me of all the wonderful Valentine’s Tutorials you’ve written! So inspiring!

  16. Karin Callander says:

    I do love that twister pattern – your quilting really enhances the design! Thanks for including the cutting directions; I don’t have a GO! and unless I win one somewhere, somehow, I just don’t foresee one in my future. 🙁

    When I got to the basket picture, I thought for a moment that was Sadie popping up out of the middle one! She’s a cutie, for sure!!
