Some Valentine Quilt Sewing Happening Here

With the Nuts About ? Blog Hop coming soon, I've been busy creating ideas in my head
and finally sewing something together. I can tell you it will be a Valentine quilt, but I can't tell 
you what I'm nuts about or show you what I'm sewing for the hop. Not until February 5th anyway.
Besides, I'm nuts about too many things to list them all here!

I can show you a little snippet, though.

I'm using First Crush by Sweetwater for Moda fabrics. Such fun fabrics!
I bought them at Quilted of my favorite local stores.
 Appliqueing those hearts with Therm-O-Web's Heat N Bond Lite adhesive
was just the best ever. I love how the back peels off so easy!

I've also started gathering fabrics for In My Garden Blog Hop. I'll be using fabrics
from the Riley Blake basics. I'm going with some funky colors for this project. Fun!

As for the weather...
We had about 10 flakes of snow here (okay, maybe a few more) but nothing stuck to the ground.
Guess I won't be building a snowman today so I'll go sew. Sounds good to me!
