Love is in the Air - a finished Valentine´s Day Quilt

 ***Please hop over to my Giveaway here, if you like!***

 Here it is, my little "Love" quilt, ready for Valentine´s Day.
  It´s 20 inches square and fits onto the glass of our coffee table.
  I free-motion-quilted it yesterday and it was fun. Once again it is far from perfect, but not as horrible as my earlier attempts. A little bit of improvement is visible. That´s why I show you these close ups. But please be patient with me! I´m still a beginner. But I think these smaller projects are great for a bit of practice.


 I´m quite proud of the stippling in the "O".

 Let´s see how long it takes my hubby to notice the new quilt on the table. :-)
 It seems that love is in the air these days. Look what Carla made this week! Yesterday she commented on my last post about this little quilt and that was the first time I visited her blog. Seems we had the same vibrations. :-)

I´m linking up with Finish It Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts
