Forever Mine! Hearts, Stars, Strings and More!


It's time for some sweet treats around here!

You've seen me working on this in bits and pieces behind the scenes.

You likely thought all of this red stringing was a Christmas project while we were still in December - but sneak peeks have been happening here and there, and with less than a month until Valentine's Day - 

I thought we best get this show on the road NOW!

Are you ready for some pink and aqua with red all over? 

Then perhaps my new Forever Mine PDF pattern is your next project!


Forever Mine hanging or table topper -

48 1/2" x 48 1/2"

Hearts, Stars & Pinwheels, Oh My!


Forever Mine Table Runner included!

22 1/2'' x 62 1/2''

I love switching out one holiday for the next - The Christmas "stuff" has all been put away, and Valentine's Day is on the way!

You can make this to decorate your own space, or as a gift for a grandchild, a new baby, someone you love!

The projects are not that large - and can be made up in a weekend or two.

Are you game?


Who says reds and pinks can't play nicely together? Throw a bit of aqua to turquoise into the mix and all is right in my world.

The string piecing is done on paper foundations, but you can use any method you like. 

I used my Essential Triangle Tool for the pinwheel triangles and the Simple Folded Corners or Simple Folded Corners Mini for the stitch and flip corners on the hearts.  I love how these tools work hand-in-hand with each other, and I can’t live without either of them.

Optional methods are given if you don’t have access to these rulers. However, the rulers do save me time and fabric, and increase my accuracy!


Cold sunny day, with a smattering of snow!  Photos taken the afternoon that the heating guy came to fix the furnace at the QPO last week.

Because we need to keep the good things going, the introductory price for Forever Mine at 25% off the regular price  ($9.00) and will keep it at 25% off through Valentine's Day.  After that, the price reverts to $12.00.

And we are going to gift away a Forever Mine PDF pattern including both the wall quilt/topper and table runner to one lucky winner! 

Not only that - because Valentine's Day is about love, appreciation, friendship and sharing - I'm going to also send a free Forever Mine pattern to the winner's friend of their choosing!

What? You want more?


Irene at Cotton to Quilts will also be sending a Facets of Red fabric roll and a red String Time strip pack to our lucky winner!

As you can see from this photo, she's got fabric rolls in reds, pinks, aqua/turquoise and our much beloved and sought after neutrals available in the Cotton to Quilts online shop. 

The String Time strip packs are just what they sound like - String Time packages come with 180 different 10" long strings of varying widths cut from 20 different fabrics providing variety and convenience!

Grab your pattern, order that fabric - and dive right in!

What are you waiting for?


We will be drawing for our winner on Friday, January 22nd!


I quilted both Forever Mine quilts in a rosy pink thread in an edge-to-edge design called Heart to Heart by Patricia E. Ritter and Natalie Gorman of UrbanElementz.com.

Saturday plans - Storage Room Demolition at Quiltville Inn.  What was originally the master bedroom closet is getting a re-do - the old short closets and doors are being removed to make room for industrial shelving to hold sheets, towels, other linens and quilts - 

It's going to be messy.  It won't all be done today - but it's a start.

All we've got to do is START, right?


Quiltville Quote of the Day -

It may be a new project, a new experience, perhaps a new item that may make all of the difference in the world.
A new kind of open conversation with friends or family on a deeper level that opens up a whole new understanding.
A new attitude, a new determination to grow beyond our own limiting beliefs and boundaries.
Do you trust the magic of beginnings? ⁣
You can always begin again. Just start anywhere!

In case you think I've forgotten, I'll be drawing for Mary Koval's fabric and Winter Blues pattern gift-away on Monday.

I'll catch you back here then!

  13. Thank you for a lovely pattern I've been saving my "purple" strings from my Winter Blues version - had some jelly rolls - I cut down!! could work on this one??? I had a conversation yesterday with a lady here in our mobile park and I had no idea who she was, but she must have needed to talk about putting her dad in a memory care facility!!

    It was quite an experience - something new - learn something new each day and it won't be wasted!!

  40. Great timing on the drawing as Saturday, the 23rd, is a 3-shop Shop Hop in my neck of the woods. So if I don't win (and good luck to everyone who enters), I still have time to order the pattern and add the fabric requirements to my shopping list. Them I will LeaderEnder this with Winter Blues (done in fall orange & gold colors at my hubby's request). I need to work on the few dozen projects I have, but Bonnie, you keep making "I must have" patterns! LOL
