Sweet Surrender: A Free Valentine's Day Quilt Pattern

Sweet Surrender Valentine's Day Quilt Pattern


I love Valentine's Day. It's not the idea of romance that keeps me interested because, believe me, when you've been married for 15 years the most romance you can hope for getting control of the TV long enough to watch The Notebook before the family begins to riot. No, what I love about Valentine's Day little heart stickers, white paper doilies, and those cheap little cards with cheesy sayings that kids exchange at school. Valentine's Day still retains the same magic today as it did when I was a kid, whereas some other holidays--cough--(Christmas!!!) becomes overshadowed with frenzied stress.


Sweet Surrender Valentine's Day Quilt Pattern


Lately I have been so much in the V-Day spirit that a couple of nights ago I shot out of bed at 3am with the idea for this banner quilt. And I wanted to share the pattern with you, so hopefully, if you want to make it, you'll have enough time before the 14th. The quilt is only about 36in x 48in, so it makes a cute wall-hanging. I made the quilt with all solids, but I think it would be so cute made-up with some prints, or maybe colorful banners instead of all white ones.

I hope this Valentine's Day you get lots of candied hearts, flowers, and Ryan Gosling!!

XOXOXO

    I'm not so much a fan of Valentine's day, much to my sweet husband's dismay. lol But I might put together three of these blocks and make a little something for decorating the house.

    1. I'm glad you like it! All the best idea come to me in the middle of the night--I guess during the daytime my brain is busy trying to block out reality, lol. (Work and housework!)
