I’ve embarked on two new adventures all at once…and this blog got swallowed by the other one, until now. I’ve also opened an etsy shop. Here’s the story:
Valentine’s Day is my favorite holiday, after Christmas, so I always try to do a little something nice and unexpected for friends and family. This year I bought a doodlebat called “Lovey Dovey” with cute little birdies snuggling and sending out hearts. I blew them up, printed them up and stitched them with a stem-stitch, like redwork. They were so cute I built little quilts around each one.
Valentine Quiltie
My son Conal loved them and called them “Quilties.” Thus, the name of the shop!
I haven’t received permission to use the fonts for quilties that I sell, so I’ve been busy sketching up my own designs. That’s a challenge for me, but a fun and satisfying one. Each little quiltie is truly my creation.
More about quilties to come.
