100th post: Happy Valentine's Day

Harlequin Hearts 2000
What better day to share my 100th blog post than Valentine's Day?  Thank you all for being such wonderful blog friends!  You're Sweethearts - every one of you.  Your sweet comments and support have made writing a blog so much more fun than I ever imagined.

Here are a couple of quilty Valentines to share with you....

The first is Harlequin Hearts which I made in about 2000.  I wish I had made a note of the magazine where I found the pattern.

Bleeding Hearts 2004
The second is a queen size quilt that is on our bed each Valentine's Day.  My notes say I started it on Valentine's Day 2004.   My mother had a big bleeding heart plant near our kitchen door when I was growing up.  This pattern reminds me of those pretty pink flowers.  The quilt really needs more quilting, and now that I'm getting better at that I think it's time to put some feathers in those setting triangles.

And what's a 100th blog post without a celebration?  Yep, I have a give away!   I've made a sweet little 12inch tulip redwork and it could be on it's way to you!!  Just leave a comment (or send an e-mail) and I'll put your name in the drawing.  It's a busy weekend, so I'll draw a name on Monday.  Since I'm just a little blogger your odds are really good.  So let's hear from you!

Happy Valentine's Day!
