Heart Valentine's Day Quilt

I happened to find a picture of this little quilt I made ten years ago and thought I'd share it with you for a quick and easy Valentine's Day project.

This project is even easier now with the help of Tulip® Sticky Fabric Stencils™ - they are adhesive backed and ready to be applied to T-shirts, home dec fabric, walls - wherever you want some color!

Place the stencils on your prewashed fabric and dab Tulip® Soft Fabric Paints™ in the openings with a costmetic sponge and that's it for the painting - see, you didn't even have to get out a brush!

For the borders - just cut printed fabric the length of the painted fabric, sew it on and then add your side borders.

Sandwich your painted piece, batting and backing fabric. Sew around the edges leaving a couple inches unsewn. Flip, sew the opening closed and you have an adorable quilt.

This same idea is perfect for placemats, chair covers, can use the same stencils to make a matching card or wrapping paper - have fun!

Happy today!
