Valentine's Day Sewing with Love Letters Fabric


Hello! Today I am excited to be posting as a new blogger for Riley Blake designs. I love Riley Blake fabrics, they are so beautiful and fun, and I use them in almost every project I make for myself! Today I have the honor of being a part of the Love Letters fabric blog tour, and I'm so excited to share my projects with you!


When I saw this Love Letters fabric by Lindsey, The Cottage Mama, I knew I had to make something with it! I have quite the collection of vintage valentines, and I knew this fabric would fit right in.


The first project I made was a version of my Happy Hearts quilt pattern, which can be found in the current issue of Quiltmaker magazine. This pattern is great for beginners. There is little fabric waste, the techniques are simple, and the quilt sews together very quickly. The finished quilt looks harder than it is, and I'll bet you can't make just one!


I made a throw-sized quilt that finishes at 50" x 60." I tried free-motion quilting with my new Janome Memory Craft 6700p and used 100% wool batting from Hobbs Batting for the first time, and it quilted like a dream! I had no troubles with the quilting, and I love the extra loft this batting has. I am super happy with how it turned out.





The next projects I HAD to make with this fabric were a set of Lovely Letters Pillows for my boys. This pattern is available in my Etsy shop, and it is another quick finish! The pillow looks like an envelope, and it features a pocket on the front, perfect for tucking in sweet notes or treats. The pattern comes with multiple "postage stamp" options, or you can make your own fabric stamps if you would rather do that! I love making my own stamps, but since I know these pillows are going to get used by two little boys, I chose to piece my stamps this time for durability reasons! I even free-motion quilted their names on the address labels. Now that I've started with FMQ, I'm not sure I will ever stop!


I can't wait to gift these to my little guys on Valentine's Day! I hope they let me keep them on my bed, though. I just love the way they look with the quilt!


Thank you for following along with me today, and thank you to Riley Blake designs for allowing me to show off your beautiful fabrics!

Happy Sewing!

  1. Ever since my husband got me divorced for the past 2 years, i v'e not been my self. I was reviewing some post of how i could get back my husband then, i saw a testimony shared by Marina Choas about a spell caster named Dr. PADMAN I contacted Marina Chaos to confirm about how Dr. PADMAN helped her and she clarified everything to me of how he helped her and that gave me the courage to get in touch with Dr. PADMAN for help. Dr. PADMAN assured me that my days of sorrows will be over within 48hours after he has finished with his work. I followed his instructions he gave to me because i had the believe, faith, hope and trust in him. Verily i say to you today that i and my husband are back together and i can proudly say and testify to the world of what Dr. PADMAN did for me.

  2. Am very happy that Dr Ilekhojie did help me in bringing back my soulmate. Iam sue there are many women just like me who have done everything in their powers so as to win their husbands back, I have come here to tell everyone woman to look no further because right here is the answer. I totally think if there were likefive spell casters like Dr Ilekhojie, the world would have been a good place.Me and my Husband had been separated for4YEARS and I couldn’t manage life without him, I have used everything to win him back but non was working until when i read many testimonies about a spell caster called Dr Ilekhojie and how effective her work is. I immediately got in touch with her and followed the steps that she asked me to and after 4days my ex called asking for my forgiveness that he wanted nothing but having me back in his life permanently.
