Valentine Quilt

Deep red and vivid red plus white and ecru, simple piecing and even simpler hand quilting and all done!

Late stitching - quilting by hand

I finished this a couple of days ago - stitching late at night, after midnight, which is quite unusual for me. Still it felt comforting - stitching the binding down and joining and stitching it to the quilt on side by hand too. It was not planned - impulsive late quilting by the lamp. I realized how happy I am, I am using my kid's desk lamp - I actually do not stitch after sunset! Well, I did this Wednesday and I am happy I did.

Valentine Quillt
It is Valentine quilt officially but I am sure it will live as a March quilt too here. Local tradition celebrates wine on Feb 14th and March is the red-and-white month with the martnenitsa rituals. So this quilty is mixing love, wine and health wishes all in one for a February-March quilt on the wall. Or maybe on a table... Have not decided yet.

The pink background is the back of a Strippy quilt. I am not a pink person in general, but reds and pinks together is something I like.

Happy Valentine's Day and Happy Wine Day!
