Quiltmaker wishes you a Happy Valentine's Day with a free quilting motif!

I gathered up some quilter's eye candy as a Valentine's Day treat for Quilty Pleasures readers.
Denise made this little beauty from a kit by grabngokits.com. It's called Red Hot Hearts Penny Rug.
One of my most favorite Robert Kaufman “I love you” prints from a line in 2004 called Cute to Boot. And below, in another, more intense colorway:
I wish I had bought yards of these when they were out, so I could put them on the back of my (yet to be) grandbabies' quilts.
Eileen learned to hand applique on this heart quilt many years ago. That's a lot of inside and outside points!
Here we have vintage-type Valentine images on 2004 “Sweet Valentine” fabric from RJR Fabrics. And below, smaller Valentines on white from the same line.
Denise learned to foundation paper piece while making the multicolored hearts quilt shown above. The pattern is from the Carol Doak book shown below.
Denise made “A Mother's Love” (above) as a bee challenge. I liked what she wrote about it: “It's called A Mother's Love because a mother's love is endless, overflowing and topsy-turvy all at the same time.” I believe she is exactly right!
And just because I collect heart-shaped lovely things, here is my favorite pewter heart hook set from Crosby & Taylor. Isn't it fun?
Wishing you a Happy Valentine's Day, and time spent with the ones you love.
