The last item on this week’s list is done! It’s rare for a top of mine to go straight from the design wall to the longarm but I decided the heart pantograph would look good on this Charm Square top too. Don’t you love the texture quilting brings to a top?! Pantograph is Leafy Love.

And how cute are my little Valentines?! Becky is so good about sending me photos of the girls. I sent all the kids cards for Valentine’s Day and I’m assuming that Caleb and Bree got theirs but Becky doesn’t leave me wondering!

Keith and I chose to stay home rather than go out so I cooked him one of his favorite meals and we had a quiet evening – it was perfect!


  1. I’m so glad you got a pic of the girls enjoying their cards. I sent a box off to CA that was supposed to be there Wednesday but it’s still in transit. Even though I sent it priority, with changes to the service and recent rate changes the PO no longer offers step by step tracking even though you send priority. HOWEVER for just a little more you can buy more detailed tracking. That just ticks me off.

  2. That is a great design. Wish I used more of the pantograph I have but it is such a pain to go back and forth around the machine whenever the thread breaks. I have an old APQS Ultimate purchased in 2001.

  3. Adorable quilt and adorable girls!! We didn’t go out either. Headed out to a college basketball game after work but hit icy roads, so we just turned around and went home. Dave drove through a fast food restaurant for food. We went home and listened to the game online. And I discovered that the meal I ordered was not what was in the bag. Oh well.

  4. Cute, cute little valentine girls!! My husband and I stayed in also and we cooked dinner together. After running around doing errands in all the traffic it was perfect just staying home. That pantograph is perfect. I love getting my quilts back from the quilter. She always does a beautiful job and it is like looking at a different quilt. The quilting just brings everything together and makes it complete.

  5. As a former waitress I can tell you that you made the right decision. The 2 days or worst service and quality in the restaurant industry are Valentines Day and Mother’s Day. However, the night before these holidays are great nights to eat out!

  6. Hi Mary! That picture!! You cannot help but smile when you look at Mo’s delight. I love that panto – it looks just fabulous on that quilt. ~smile~ Roseanne
