Love and Chocolate


From Kathleen Tracy's book, American Doll Quilts a sweet and simple pattern called Prairie Quilt.  And, because February is the month of love, it only seemed fitting to make it in red.  Most of the fabric is Sturbridge Village Scarlet.  Hand pieced and quilted with a finished size of 15 inches by 16.5 inches.


Wishing you a Sweet Valentines!

A bell is no bell 'til you ring it,
A song is no song 'til you sing it,
And love in your heart
Wasn’t put there to stay -
Love isn’t love
'Til you give it away.


~Oscar Hammerstein, Sound of Music, "You Are Sixteen (Reprise)"


Until next time.....happy quilting!
