Hearts for February
I was asked to design a Valentine's card for personal use. I was working on a couple of quilted heart projects but they weren't bright enough. So, to the fabric stash bins to pull inspiration from some colorful and heart-themed fabrics.
After piecing together a small cabin (from a sampler pictured above) . . .
I remembered a decorative magnet that I have displayed on a metal thread rack (sorry, no visible label or logo). Voilà - the Valentine greeting below is exactly what she was hoping for!
Creative heART inspirations are all around us . . . in our fabric stash:
in the desert:
even at a car show:
in a window display:
as part of a patchwork hankie display:
in a keepsake box:
and, extra special when found in a quilt:
"You can't use up creativity.
The more you use, the more you have."
