Back after the big C

Yes, I’m finally back on board after Christmas…but also after Covid, which I got as an unwelcome Christmas gift…..sorry for the big gap in posting. However, I’m now well and ready to spread some love. Are you?

If you’re in the mood to use up a pile of scraps, try this simple log cabin heart, “Love in a Little Log Cabin,” made using paper-piecing for convenience. If you prefer, you can just use the lay-out and larger strips–it’s up to you. ON SALE for $3.50 until Valentine’s Day.

If that looks like too many blocks to tackle, you can go the other direction with this extremely simple baby quilt, “Sweet Heart Square Dance,” just 15 squares and great for a beginner. You can even omit the ruffle if it’s too much to handle. Also on sale.

Even simpler, how’s this for a wonderful 12″ valentine? Super-quick!

If you need a special valentine for anyone, including Grandpa or some other military vet, here’s an idea, “Check Out My Purple Heart.”

Another one that can easily be made for man or woman is this special valentine, “Chains of Love.” Done in pinks and white, it’s much more feminine.

Whether you’re ready for a big project or just a little one, you’ll find all of these ON SALE for the next few weeks. I didn’t add the URLs for each because I’ve heard that my blogs are going to spam folders. So just go to and use the “search button”–search “hearts” or each title.

I have one more to share. There’s no pattern for this one because it’s really intricate with partial seams that are really hard to describe in instructions. It’s on display, however, at The Kelly Fitzpatrick Memorial Gallery in downtown Wetumpka, Alabama, on Company Street, in the “Sawdust and Rust” Exhibit. I designed it with 3 wood prints and 3 metallic fabrics as my contribution to wood and metal. It’s called “Unchain My Heart, Locked in a Box.” The piece in front of it is by Dale Lewis. (The curator loved how the oranges went together!)
This exhibit will be on display for 6-8 weeks. It’s fabulous! Come see it!

Hope to be back with another blog soon–I have a baby quilt with five hearts ready to cut out! Sharing the love!! Libby

Send me feedback–is this coming through without going to SPAM??? Did you find other blogs in your Spam folder? I need to know! THANKS!
