There is love in the air and a twinkle in your eye. So grab that heart shaped box full of chocolates and get to work. These adorable panels, stripes, dots and swirls will make any quilter's heart skip a beat or two. Luscious pinks, reds and a pop of green keep this Valentine's Day fresh and sweet.

3 Beautiful Quilts for 3 Beautiful Ladies! This picture was submitted by our good friend Chris C. from Australia. Here she is pictured with her quilting friends. From left to right, Dawn, Chris and Rhonda. They all worked on making these gorgeous Aged Elegance quilt tops together. Chris says, "The photo was taken by Janet the fourth member of our Friday quilting group. We have great fun each Friday taking turns to meet in each other's home. A lot of the time is taken up in laughing, talking and EATING. We have been known to get a little quilting in too!! There is nothing like the friendship of Quilters no matter where we are in the world." Thank you, Chris!
This wallhanging was created by Adrienne B. from New York. She made this as a birthday gift using the Moda Butterfly Fling layer cake. Thank you for sharing this with us, Adrienne!
This adorable quilt was sent to us by Julie C. from Bogata, Texas. This lovely quilt was made for her brand new niece using fabric from the Giggles Flannel collection from Moda. Thank you, Julie, for sharing and congratulations on your new niece!
Come on fellow quilters! Send us your pictures and we'll post them on our blog and in the gallery on our website.

The first day pretty much is spent at Schoolhouse. Basically it's a plethora of mini pitch-your-product vignettes from designers, fabric companies, and other quilt-related businesses. These sessions last from 15 to 30 minutes and then you're literally running to the next one. It's a wonderful opportunity to get a sneak peak at what's coming out, hear from the designers, and get a bunch of freebies.
When Schoolhouse is over, we get a 2 hour break and then its time for Sample Spree. This can be best be described as CRAZY MAYHEM! Everyone lines up, some for hours, and when the door opens everybody runs in, with most heading straight to the Moda corner. Sample Spree is just that: a 2-hour spree with about 100 vendors and the opportunity to actually pre-purchase product not yet released. I opted to stay away from the Moda corner this year, but did grab some wonderful new fabrics that will be coming out next spring.
We were able to capture a few snapshots of up and coming quilt patterns from a few of our favorites. There will be many more to come over the next few days.
This is a close up of the new "Jardin de Roses" block-of-the-month from Verna Mosquera of The Vintage Spool. It features fabrics from her brand new line "Savon Bouquet."
COMMENT: We are planning on offering this as a block-of-the-month program. If you would like to see this available at The Quilt Shoppe, leave us a comment!
Although a little blurry, this is a quilt from Robyn Pandolph's new collection, Sumptious Living. This new collection is beyond description -- it is breathtakingly gorgeous.
We had a wonderful time at Renee Nanneman's schoolhouse featuring her new fabric line, French Farmhouse, already available at The Quilt Shoppe.
