Love Is In the Air-Quilt Kit


I know I was just talking about how I have nothing really to decorate my house for Valentine's Day---well I am on a roll now! I've got a Valentine's Pillow, Quilt, and Table runner now! :)  Now I can add another quilt to the list! :)

I forgot my friend gave me this fun little quilt kit for Valentine's Day.  I was going through my fabric and looking for something and came across the kit--and figured I should put it together! It is February after all, and I have never put together a quilt from a kit before so I thought I would give it a try!

The fabric is called Love Is In The Air by Deb Strain for Moda.

I literally put this together in less than 2 hours.  The quilt is made out of the panel in the middle and then two borders, plus prairie points.  I had no idea that prairie points were to easy to put together.  I can't tell you how fun it was to make this--it required no thinking at all! lol--I am used to creating my own patterns-- and that requires a lot of thinking, math, and measurements.  I didn't have to do any of that!   It was so nice to sit at my sewing machine and put this together without trying to figure out the correct measurements! 

I just need to baste and quilt this baby and it will be done! :) I am now a fan of quilt kits! I will definitely do this again sometime! :)

Talk to you soon,

My first quilt had prairie points - surprising how easy they are! And I love that fabric line - reminds me of chocolate dipped strawberries!

Love it! Those prairie points are so cute. They were my grandmothers favorite and she put them on almost all of her quilts. After all this creating we do it is nice to sit down and let someone else do all the picking and calculating:)
