Valentine's Quilts we're Crushing on!!

Valentine's Day is right around the corner and I have been spotting so many adorable quilt designs for the holiday of LOVE! Make one for your daughter or sister this Valentine's Day or put one together for yourself to bring out every year at this time! Lots of Love by Tamara Kate is simple and graphic! I love how she used darker prints for the hearts at the bottom and they get lighter as you go up! That pop of aqua is pretty adorable too!
Tamara Kate designed Lots of Arrows as well and this one gives me a sweet and charming folk art vibe, especially with the scrappy fabric mixing! I just really love the scrappy gray background too! You honestly don't need Valentine's themed fabric to make these themed quilts...just get all the pinks, reds and maybe one accent color out of your stash and start playing around!
Big Love was designed by Modern Handcraft and she was kind enough to share a tutorial! I love the graphic element of this quilt and it's really minimal sewing required for how big the impact is! A great project for solids!!

I Heart Chevrons is such a cute stripe design, also dreamed up my Modern Handcraft! And it's another quilt you can totally use your stash to make! Think of how stunning this would look with a black or gray background...use the original design for inspiration and try experimenting with your favorite fabrics! I honestly think ANY of these designs would be adorable any occasion quilts made up in your favorite collection of the moment.
Happy Quilting!
