I have a spot on the living room wall that I usually change out with a seasonal/holiday quilt. DD said last weekend, "You don't have a valentine quilt for this spot?!" Soooooo...went downstairs and raided stash. After some hours...here is what I came up with (literally)

I know I am going to hear the same thing around St. Pat's Day...arrrrrggggghhhhhh lol

Good for you. It's just darling. I may have to make a heart piece myself but doubt if mine will be done by the 14th.

It's adorable. Replace the hearts with shamrocks and you're all set for St. Paddy's.

It's cute.
I should make some seasonal wall hangings.
I always say I am going to do them but never do.
TFS.

A couple years ago we were encouraging one another to make 4 seasonal wall hangings. I failled miserably and only made one but I think some others did much better. I still like the idea and wish I had more hangings to switch out during the year.

Good golly you are on the ball, not to mention really good with getting a quick idea. It would have taken me a few days just to think up what to make.

Very nice - You deserve a big box of your chocolates! I can't wait to see what you do make for St Patrick's Day since you have time to think about it!

I think it is amusing what our husbands say about what we make (or don't make) in addition to putting up with the strings & bits we drag around the house - my soft socks are like swiffers. A heart wall hanging he prompted you to make is probably making him proud of his idea :)

Dee, Very cute heart blocks and I like how you set them, too. I don't know that I have ever just whipped one up like that.....I'd have to be more organized than I am.

Kate, I have one finished and one UFO on the seasonal things we tried. I have a couple other UFO's I could probably turn into seasonal......thanks for bringing that up! @:)

One of our new posters, littlehelen, has a wallhanging pattern that uses large-ish blocks that she's done in a variety of color ways as gifts. It's a cool pattern and would be easy to adapt to any seasonal theme. The layout of Dee's quilt reminds me of that pattern. I'll have to see if I can find a picture to share.

Wow!
You have an extremely gifted talent of creating & arranging diverse sized blocks and appliqued hearts into an eye-catching design!

What a wonderful idea to have a spot for hanging seasonal, or even monthly wall quilts. I thought to do that with table runners too.

I will add that idea to my TO DO list.
You gals are quite the enablers here!

Great job on the wallhanging. Two years ago I decided I would make seasonal wallhangings for my living room to show off my love for quilts. Well I made 2... Halloween and Christmas. My two favorite holidays I guess. But now I want to make them for the rest of the year. I'll have to put that on my to do list.
Dee I like your pattern so much I may try to make it.

RE: Valentine wall hanging

Thanks everyone! I haven't done anything for St. Pat's yet so the hearts are still up. Don't have a lot of green in my stash and too many things on my "to do" list.

nanaofmany08, great ideas for the other months. June could be themed around birdhouses, birds, etc.
