Valentine Quilt

I'm running true to form this year and have my Valentine's Day quilt ready to put up just a little too late. But just think how nice it will look next year!Here is a close up of the shadow applique. The pinkish vine shapes are actually a red fabric, but the ivory overlay tones them way down. You can't really tell in this picture, but I stitched around the shapes using metallic gold thread and lightly trapuntoed the heart shape.

And I bought myself a Valentine's Day gift yesterday: a new Bernina! I'm so happy with a new machine to play with, but there is, as always, a rather steep learning curve.
