Are you Feelin' the Love?

We got these adorable fabrics from Northcott this week called 
"Love Nest"

 Close up of the smaller prints:
 And we thought....What if we organized a Valentine swap?
Drop off a 4"x 6" Valentine to the shop by February 9th at 5pm and you will receive one in the mail from someone else!  As a thank you Quilters Crossing will give each participant a $5 off coupon, good for their next purchase.
We have kits at the store you can purchase for $5.
You can pull from your stash. 
Kits include:
 a 4x6" piece of pelltex Stablizer,
 4x6" piece of Watercolor paper for the back, 
a variety of Love Nest Fabrics equalling 1/8 of a yard, 
4 pieces of velveteen rick rack.
Valentines should be 4"x 6" (like a postcard) but the rest is up to you.
You can use mixed media techniques, quilting, fabric, embellishments etc... please remember to give what you would like to receive! And remember these will be mailed so no breakable embellishments or Valentines too thick to be mailed in a regular envelope please!
They must be turned in on or before February 9th by 5 pm at which time we give you a $5 coupon for participating.
Here is an example made from the Love Nest Fabrics.
Every Valentine will be unique! They can be funny, simple, detailed...whatever you like!
We'll mail your return Valentines on February 10th so hopefully you'll receive them by Valentines Day! Anyone is welcome to enter, no purchase necessary. One coupon per participant.
Stop by the store to see the example up close.


  1. I love the new fabric! What a great idea for Valentine's Day I'm going to check out your kits when I come in next week.

  2. Great! Kudos on your blog too! Thanks for all the supportive posts about our shop. That really means a lot! I also loved seeing the cowboy boots all done! I made the Mary Janes but not the boots, it is good to know it is a good pattern.
