A Couple Finishes from a While Back

I have to work at the shop today, but I'm soo ready for the virtual Friday Night Sew-In tonight ~ maybe I'll get something finished this week. So instead I'll show you two quilts I finished last summer. The patterns for both are in Quilt Almanac 2010 on the news stand now!

This Valentine quilt called "Heartfelt Love" I made with the Love Notes fabric collection designed by Faye Burgos for Marcus Brothers Fabrics. This cute little one is 62" square, not too big so I quilted it myself.

...And my Christmas Quilt, "Winterberry Wreaths" made with the Christmas Magic collection designed by Lynette Anderson for Henry Glass Fabrics. I like this one because while it has holly wreathes and little reindeer in the border, it's not too Christmasy and can stay on the bed for a while before and after the holidays.

I had Maria O'Haver of Pangor Design Studio quilt this one for me, and as you can see here on the back she did a beautiful job using holly, and reindeer for a cute whimsical look.

This is a big one (82" x 106"), I needed two guys to hold it up on our back deck to snap a picture of it! As soon as they update their website, all of the pillows that you see (and the little fabric Valentine postcards) will be free downloadable patterns at Quilt Magazine's website.

Enjoy the day!

Dawn,

I love this quilt and the pillows and I have the magazine to start of the quilt but was unable to find the patterns online for the pillows and postcards. Do you happen to know how I can locate them?
