HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY


 HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!

Sending you, my friends,  best wishes for a lovely day via a small quilt made years ago.  The colors are much softer than shown here, but the sentiment is the same.

 A fifteen inch Crazy Quilt, hand stitched with many hearts.


 With handwritten quotes around the borders.


 And in the center square.





 A scalloped border done with tube paints.



 Quotes:

  "When friends meet, hearts warm."  
proverb 

"The greatest gift we can give to one another is rapt attention to one another's existence."
Sue Atchley Ebaugh

"If you want an accounting of your worth, count your friends."
 Merry Browne

"No life is so strong, so complete, But it yearns for the smile if a friend."

I especially love those linked hearts. And continue to be amazed at how much your handwriting looks like mine. We must have learned from the same system.

Happy Valentine's Day Pat. It's a beautiful little quilt. I especially like the "The greatest gift we can give to one another is rapt attention to one another's existence." quote. As days go by and birthdays fly it becomes oh so evident that this is a quote to remember.

xx, Carol
