Twelve Days of Hearts, Flowers and Friendship: Day 11

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 continue with Day 11:

The Beat Goes On by Stephanie McCormick , quilted by Pat Roche

Stephanie explains, "I used Ricky Tims' wonderful hand-dyed fabrics to piece and machine applique this quilt found in the 2011 issue of the Quilt Life Magazine."(The highlighted links in this paragraph will take you directly to the purchase information for this pattern. Just hover your computer mouse over the words, then left-hand click on them).

The Beat Goes On was quilted by Pat Roche on a track-mounted machine. We like this contemporary quilting scheme, with the emphasis on curves and circles which mirrors the rounded shape of the valentine hearts. These vibrantly colored fabrics reflect the fact that a Valentine's party is a time for cheer and for celebrating one of the most fun holidays of the year.
