Valentine Crafting Spree

I am avoiding quilting Joe's quilt.  There, I said it.  Hence, the plethora of Valentine's crafts I've been pumping out the last few days.

Button collage.  A hot glue gun has been added to my list of "tools that are too dangerous for Sonia to use."

A Valentine pennant banner with fabric triangles purchased online.  (I really need to get some fancy molding around that window . . . oh, and clean those icky, icky blinds.)

Here's progress on my Giddy table runners.  Check out the quilting.  Tee, hee, hee.  I'm not usually a heart fan, but for Valentine's Day I ought to make an exception, right?


Now, back to Joe's quilt.  I could try some free motion stars as shown below.  Someone suggested straight line quilting straight through the quilt--not following the optical illusion.  The ideas are simmering.  Guess I ought to just get to work.

The three stars at the top and the meander on the right were done by my 5-year-old.  I love that she is not afraid to try new things!

I love your quilting! The heart meander is adorable. I've done similar quilting before, but not for a long time.
