Happy Valentines, Quilt u be Mine reveal and Giveaway

oh yes, it's a busy day today, lots going on and lots to reveal.
Firstly, DH bought my tulips awwww


and these cute sweeties, they are from Lidls
I cannot believe the effort that's gone into making the cute little rose, they are just too gorgeous 



See, romance isn't dead, I gave him a torch lol, how romantic eh !!! We were supposed to be going out to lunch but I decided I'd cook a meal, then had to make a osteopath/physio appointment for tonight, so it might be a late meal.

and now DAHDAH the big Quilt u be mine round robin reveal, way back in October I sent off my embroidery and border, then it went to three different parts of America and came home to me in time for Valentines.

 Here are the first two borders, cute oxo's and then gorgeous ribbon work, the pen lines are mine, possible quilting lines, but I'm not sure.  Did think I might hand quilt it *gasp* but I'd probably get bored and it'd end up a UFO

Any quilting ideas ???

This is it fully revealed, there is a bit of wonk on the next few borders and I love the scrappy rectangle border (do you call it a piano key border??? can't think of the proper name)

Then it's finished off with a plain red and white border, I'm contemplating adding another one but tbh it's probably going to just be a wall hanging and so is big enough.

Do you think I could make it into a siblings together quilt if I made it larger ??? The embroidery is a brother and sister, but I'm not sure kids would like it.


And finally, because I got busy on Tuesday and I'm hoping this post gets some traffic, I'm offering one of these pincushions to two winners as a little giveaway


You'll be able to choose which one you'd like and I'll pop them in the post when I get back.
Followers get an extra entry and I'll be drawing the winner on Saturday 23rd. Good luck

  6. very cute! I contemplated using a ribbon border, but didn't. But I did use the x's and o's on several of the pieces I added to, so I'm really enjoying the nearly finished look of yours.
    the pincushions are darling.

  11. Well it hasn't happened yet because I'm still at work - it's lunch time - but I did buy him a dark chocolate and almond Lindt bar. He loves chocolate! I love your block. It is quite traditional but very pretty.

  15. Your little quilts are gorgeous - hope you resolve your dilemma. I went hunting for the same sweets in our local Lidl's - sadly they don't seem to have made their way to the UK.
