    This valentines day, my boyfriend and I went for a dinner date night in the mountains. Part of our date night was him taking me to my favorite quilt shop and me spending waaaay to much money on his valentines gift, fabric for a celtic twist quilt I am making him :). He can’t wait for it to be finished! I’m loving making it!

  2. Lori Smanski says:

    He has a (red) ’66 Corvette. Would love to do a picture quilt of the car.
    Good luck to all who entered.

  4. Barbara Thibeault says:

    If I could make a Valentines Special project it would be a quilted arm warmer for my hubby who just had spinal surgery and in the process they damaged his Ulnar nerve and he is in constant pain…Any cold air causes it to ache…I have cut off a pair of socks and used the upper part in the interim but would love to make a warm, quilted valentine sleeve with a minkee lining to keep that nerve warm while he is going thru grueling physical therapy….

  5. Lynn D in NC says:

    I would make a special quilt for my husband. He deserves it.

  6. Nicole says:

    I really do not know… I am not very big on that holiday (though I have been able to celebrate it 3 times now with my hubby). He always seems to figure something out, though I am happy with flowers and chocolates. I made him a neck tie this year and he really liked it. I will be making him mire in the future. If we are talking pink, red, and hearts, I would have to say that I would probably make some pot holders and an apron for my sister CH. since she likes to cook, and I make her an apron every year for christmas.
