Now I return you to the previous appliqued heart quilt, recently quilted and bound. I didn't specifically plan this to be a Valentine's quilt, but when I started hand quilting it in December I realized that I would probably finish it around this time. Now I realize that it probably is a Valentine's quilt - maybe that should have been obvious? Valentine's Day is perhaps a controversial holiday at times, but personally I love it. Maybe to me it is more of a celebration of the heart motif and the colors red and pink, all of which I love. If you doubt that statement, this quilt should be proof enough. I definitely love these things year round, but I'm perfectly satisfied to have a chance to celebrate them now and then.
This quilt will always remind me of my semester in Mexico when much of this handwork was done. My host mother really loved the project; I wish she could see it now.
I will probably not be able to get nice natural light pictures of this until Saturday, and I didn't want to wait that long to share it. These will have to do for now.
