Happy Valentine's Day!

For Valentine's Day this year I thought that I would make some heart blocks to donate to our guild's Hug Quilt project. When one of our guild members is facing a long-term illness or other personal hardship, guild members work together to make her a “hug quilt”. These hug quilts are made from 6 1/2 inch (unfinished) heart blocks that are stitched with love by guild members. The blocks can be made from any pattern and in any color, but they should have a white, off white or cream colored background. If you are a member of the Mountain Laurel Quilt Guild please remember that the Hug Quilt project is ongoing and February is a great time to replenish our supply of heart blocks.

This is such a kind and thoughtful project to do and you are always ready for the unexpected in life by doing it.

Very sweet and thoughtful gesture, *hug quilts* are just that...they hug you when you are in need of a hug! What a great idea to have the blocks on hand for doing a *hug quilt*! Thank you for doing this "love" project!

Such a pretty heart.

That is a lovely idea. There's no feeling quite like being snuggled in a quilt when you are under the weather.

Love your soft romantic heart.
