It's February already! It's 2019! The years seem to fly by the older I get! This year my beloved husband and I will be celebrating 35 years of marriage and I am reminded of something that took place about four years ago. We were in Las Vegas where my husband was attending a conference. I was coming back to our room from enjoying a walk and stepped onto the elevator with another woman about my age. She looked at me and asked, "So, happy or married?"
She was shocked when I answered, "Both! For over 30 years!"
There have been a lot of ups and downs over the years, but our love abides.
In other words we keep to, hold to, stick to, and stand by one another.
We were so young...and we are still having a blast together
I was playing with a heart quilt block as I was thinking about my business name, Tuning My Heart Quilts, and came up this block that I turned into a small quilt for a friend's birthday.
I thought about how to turn it into a larger quilt that would be a celebration of our Abiding Love and this quilt was born. I do a lot with blue fabrics because I married a man who is colorblind-which is an interesting thing for someone like me to deal with, a lifelong artist who is all about color. So I popped in that red heart in the middle just for me.
I need to quilt this one, but I have an abiding love for chocolate and this one speaks to that, with it's chocolate and cherry fabrics, lol. I added more borders on this one to feature that print.
I wrote up the pattern and sent it off to my pattern testers and I love what they came up with. Here is what they did with my pattern:
The directions include both the single and multiple border options. There is a bonus pattern included to make a little runner from those leftover triangles too. Abiding Love is really a fun pattern to make and goes together very quickly with my piecing techniques. And it is great for every skill level!
Happy February Quilting!
