Are You Ready for Valentine's Day?

Valentine's Day is nearing, so it's time to store the wreath/pine tree/green and red quilts and bring out the red and white classics, the pink and white quilts, or the heart quilts. What? Not a single quilt for the occasion? Me neither. Mine will be a red and white double nine patch. It could have hearts appliqued in the open spaces, but I think I will opt to showcase quilting in the open spaces instead.
Just in time for St. Valentines Day on February 14, here are a few quick, heart-themed projects:

Keep the Heart Truth Growing (embroidery - builds awareness for the Heart Truth campaign)
Valentine's Day Table Topper (with a gorgeous scalloped edge)
Heart of my Heart Valentine Quilt (this will make a great February wallhanging)
Heart Struck Runner (dress up your counter top or table with this cute runner)
Cross My Heart (lovely heart theme)
Hearts Galore (uses precuts to make quick work of it)

♥BONUS: These are great scrap-users:
Scrappy Sweethearts (nice wallhanging)
Scrappy Four Patch Heart Quilt (sweet quilt with many different sizes)
Scrap Happy Heart Quilt (great pattern for Valentine's Day and all year long)
Scrappy Heart Quilt (love this, simple and effective)
Heart Quilt (this is as easy as it gets, add sashing or let them run together!)

Happy stitching!
