I'm a member of Quilting Board, an online message board for quilters, and I'm participating in a couple of swaps, one of which is targeted for Valentine's Day. For this swap, you can swap sets of 6 blocks that represent the holiday, and the block size has to be a multiple of 3" plus seam allowance. I decided to do 3 sets of 6 1/2" blocks. Two sets are machine-appliqued hearts of my favorite red and pink fabrics. The third set is foundation-pieced hearts from patterns that I found on Ula Lenz's blog. She has some really nice foundation-piecing patterns, much more elaborate than others that I found online. I found her blog accidently, and it was a great find!

These blocks were mailed out today, and I made it just under the wire! I can't wait to see what blocks I get in return!
Check out Quilting Board, it's great community of quilters!
