Welcome to our tribute to Valentine's Day quilts ! With its emphasis on love, kindness and caring for others, Valentine's Day is one of our favorite celebrations. We're calling it "Twelve Days of Hearts, Flowers, and Friendship." Let's get started with Day 1 :
Hearts 4 You by Ildiko Dancs
We saw Ildiko's quilt at the Quilt Arizona ! show in Mesa, Arizona; and we really liked the vibrant colors and swirling energy of this work. Ildiko explains that it is based on the "Sedona Surprise" pattern by Sarah Vedeler Designs.
The lovely machine embroidery was done on a track-mounted machine. This quilt is so cheery that it will brighten up even the cloudiest day in February. It's difficult not to smile when looking at this fun and playful valentine motif.
