Happy Valentine's Day!

I don't do a lot of decorating for Valentine's Day.
Just hang this little banner on my front door
(the red paint matches the theme, at least!)
 And make a little display for my front entrance.
Designing quilt patterns is a tough business--very competitive and shops are always looking for something new.  So I've decided to try a different approach and see what happens.
I went to my distributor and picked up these samples of fabrics which will be hitting the stores soon.
They look so pretty, I almost don't want to open them!
I'm going to try designing with these new fabrics, instead of just dipping into my stash.
Hopefully I'll have some new patterns ready for Spring Market in May.
Maybe one of these times, I'll be "discovered"!
(Fingers crossed.)


  1. Hi Cheryl :)
    I've 'discovered' you, and I love our designs! :)
    Love all your Valentines hearts, and I'm wishing you lots of luck with your new patterns and knowing you'll have fun playing with all those scrummy bundles of fabric.
    Hugs Wendy x

  2. Love your hearty designs ... Perfect ones!

  3. I know I'm behind on this comment, but I just have to say that I LOVE your door banner. And your other hearts are wonderful, too! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Good luck!! I love your designs and look forward to seeing the finished projects. I know I'm way behind in my posts but that's how muy life runs.
