Valentine's Heart


This is a little crazy quilt I made for my Mom for Valentine's Day. It was the first time I tried making a bead motif (upper left corner). In case you can tell what it is, it is a rose bud! I also tried using some teardrop beads for make flowers (starts under the bud) and think that worked out pretty good. I padded the heart a bit and put on a cardboard backing and glued it to a plate that is all sparkly! Happy Valentines Day Mom! I'm taking a chance that your not monitoring my blog. (-:

So pretty. Well your first beading attempt turned out very well. What a lovely gift for your mum.

Very nice! I'm sure she'll love it! I'm also trying my hand at a crazy quilt pillow; it's nowhere near as nice and authentic as the ones you make, but I'm learning a lot as I go!

Hi Connie,
Thank you for your post on my new blog :-) I see you lived in Germany too. Whereabouts? We lived in and near Wurzburg in the 80s and 90s.
