v-day 2014

Just another day or two until V-Day or Valentine's Day - one of the most favorite holidays for a woman next to Mother's Day. Are you excited? I am!

I got a little inspired this month from my doll quilt swap. Our monthly theme was/is "love letters." Let me tell you, it is extremely hard to find sweet Valentine's fabrics over here in Germany. So, I requested a few different prints from Jo-Ann Fabrics from a secret source. I went with the theme and designed this cute 3-D Valentine's Day Envelope Wall Hanging for the whole family. There is one envelope per family member. We can drop little love notes whenever we want. I think I will put in a chocolate lolly in the pockets for the kids on Friday morning. Maybe my hubby will put something in there for me too! -)

My swap partner likes cats and batik prints. Do you think she is going to like this? I don't! That is why she will be getting her own special "love letter" exchange quilt quite different than the one featured here.

If you are interested in how I made this wall hanging, please drop me a note and I could tell you all about it. I might even send you some free templates. ;-)

Oh, by the way, I finally figured out how to fix my "no-reply" blogger problem - just delete your Google+ Account! 

 Happy Valentine's Day!


  1. I'd love to have the template / pattern for this! It would be helpful to even do this for every day- who couldn't use a special little note tucked inside all the time! Thanks! ~ Tammy

    1. Tammy, you are a "no-reply blogger." Please drop a note with your email address. ;.)

  2. This is an excellent idea!! Very impressed...will work for each season, different fabrics of course.
    I would love pattern too : )

  3. Oh my gosh, this is amazing!! I would love to make one if you don't mind sharing how. :)

  4. This is so sweet! Please share how to make this cute envelope! I would love to incorporate it on an Action Quilt!

    1. Hi Lanetta, thanks for dropping by! You can find the pattern on my Craftsy store.
