A Garden of Hearts

When I found this pattern (a few years ago) in the book Potting Shed Patchwork, I just knew I needed to make a quilt for Valentine's day -- something I could display during the month of February. I added the narrow black border (actually it's black with little red hearts) and used a narrower border than the pattern called for (because that's all the fabric I had for it), but I was still pleased at how it turned out. I had collected fabrics with hearts or "Valentine" fabrics and it was nice to finally use them. I then made this quilt (that I posted last February) using the same fabrics.
