Hugs and Kisses Blog Hop

So here we are, another fun blog hop and today is my stop on your tour...







A big thank you to Mdm Samm and Jane for creating and hosting/cheer-leading this Valentine-esque party.

I have been busy and have two projects to show you...

the first is a Conversation Hearts block, Krislovesfabric-style:

a few of the above hearts were consumed in order to give me proper inspiration...

 I chose the words: Quilt, Sew, and Dream to be my messages.


If you would like to make something similar, you can find a heart template here.

My second project is a pattern/kit I won from Michelle and the Bunnies at The Raspberry Rabbits.  They have started a Mid-Month Madness giveaway and I drew the lucky straw, yay!!
The pattern is called Rabbit Romance and it is totally perfect for this hop...pink, red, and hearts along with too-cute bunnies!!
This image taken from theraspberryrabbits.com/store

 I made my version a table topper and added a 3 inch border rather than the pattern's suggested 12 inch pillow.  This picture shows it resting on my stitching armchair :)



This pattern was very easy to follow and the kit that she provided is Valdani thread goodness and National Nonwovens quality felt.   If you want your own Rabbit Romance pattern and kit you can see if she has any left  here in her store.

Thanks for visiting me today and please be sure to visit all the others participating in the hop...
