Scandinavian Hearts in Quiltmania

I use my Scandinavian Christmas Hearts Table cover at Christmas and at Valentine's, too.  I purposely used red and white fabrics that weren't Christmas fabrics so I could use it for both.

I love the red and white.

The first thing I did when making this was to start doing the red work hearts.  The hearts were supposed to be set on point, and I mistakenly embroidered the first heart as a square block.

  So I made this little  table mat from my mistake block.

I found this Quiltmania magazine at Barnes and Noble a couple of weeks ago, and was surprised to find this pattern in the magazine.

Here is the pattern complete with all the red work designs by Wenche Wolff  Hatling for Northern Quilts.

The magazine also has this pattern by Petra Prins.  I love this medallion quilt.

There also is this beautiful red and white applique' by Gerri Robinson.

And this Wool Tulip Crossing pattern by Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings.  If you are not into wool, this pattern could just as easily be made with cotton fabrics.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Thanks for stopping by today!
