Twelve Days of Hearts, Flowers and Friendship: Day 5

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 5:

With Love by Holly Oddson

Holly notes, "My Valentine 'With Love' wall hanging is from a design by Verna Mosquera.
I pieced, appliqued, embellished, and quilted it.  It resides in my entry way during the month of February."  This charming quilt reminds us of a large vase full of Valentine-shaped flowers that are spilling over the sides and even dropping onto the floor. The border, with a cascade of hearts going in all directions, enhances the overall feeling of Valentines in motion.

Close-up, With Love

In this close-up, you can see the pretty selection of Valentine-themed fabrics chosen by Holly. She has satin-stiched around each heart to provide extra definition to these shapes. Embellishments at the top of each heart provide an extra-sparkly touch to Holly's work.
