Creative Tuesdays and Jennifer

This is another week where I've tied two projects into one.   The theme for Creative Tuesdays this time was Valentine, so Jennifer seemed to be the perfect project.

I've adapted the design from  Little Ladybug Creations and finished it in a slightly different way.  Unfortunately, I didn't have enough suitable fabric for the borders, so the quilting and finishing will have to wait for another day.

For the month of February, I need to get out all my red scraps for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, and it is UFO Number 8.  Before I can start on that, I need to do some shopping,  In the meantime, I need to catch up with this week Mystery Monday.

Jane, I am always tickled pink when you add your contribution to the theme. Such talent to do things in fabric I think. I like how you chenged it too and added the littel tringels of colours. Love the red hearts adn the material chosen there too. Very fun. Thank you.
