February Love Block

Late last year the quilt guild I belong to had challenge quilt packets ready for those who wished to participate in the activity in preparation for our quilt show in July.  The packet I pulled out of the basket was for February along with a fat quarter of fabric that must be used somewhere in the block.  I thought I would do some liberated love letters and perhaps surround the block with hearts or flowers.  I have tried a few letters in the past and found that my brain doesn't quite work in the way in which it needs to in order to make wonky, fun letters.  I even have Tonya's Word Play Quilts book, which is amazing by the way, and I still struggle making fun, wonky blocks.  Oh well, my Love letters are done and I am working on the hearts to go around them.  Fingers crossed it all works out and I'll be done soon.

The challenge piece of fabric was used in the L and the little border and it is not really something I would normally purchase even though I love novelty fabrics.

When I went outside to snap a photo of my block I looked out into the field and saw I had an audience.

Aren't they cute.  Actually they were letting me know it was past their breakfast time, but no need to worry as breakfast was delivered a few minutes later.
