Valentines Quilt

I needed an excuse to make another quilt and this time I wanted to keep it! I thought I could make a small quilt for each holiday for the back of the couch. I started with Valentines Day because it was the next holiday. I fell in love with the Moda "candy kisses" fabric line from last year after finding a charm pack I followed the idea of a quilt on Moda Bake Shop that is for using charm packs. I made my own pattern This was the first quilt I have ever quilted on my machine. I started by dropping the feed dogs, but I didn't get very consistent stitches, so I put them back up and just started! It was fun to do even though it wasn't turning out perfect. I love it though! This is the back. Here is a close-up of the stitching on the back I am excited to find something to make a st. patricks day quilt. Weird I know, but why not?
