Love Shack Baby Love Shack

Are you humming that song now?  I couldn’t help myself.  This is actually called the Love Quilt in my mind but for some reason I went to that song.  It’s a hard one to get out of my mind so once I pass it on (to you), I can forget it.  ~smile~  Now on to the Love quilt.


We picked up this charm pack and coordinating fabric for a border a while ago.  Technically one year ago last December, if you really want to know.  We laid out all the charms on the island, and then I took a picture.  That was after we moved them around for a bit.  As you can see in the picture above, we still missed some fabrics concentrated in one area.  Columns three and four have all three of the red wavy hearts.  We did break them up before I started sewing.


The fabrics and pattern just appealed to us and Sue decided that she is going to use the embroidery sewing machine exclusively to quilt this.


We thought a joined heart might be appropriate and fun for a change.  Of course, the perfect backing needs to be selected before we can layer it up.  I’m also going to try my hand at importing a design into the embroidery sewing machine.  Wish me luck!  She probably won’t get to actually quilting until after the 16th because she has two projects for a class she is taking.

Love Shack Flimsy


Here is the flimsy before she started the embroidery process.  I just love the red, white and taupe combination.  This is one that doesn’t have a planned home, yet it might be hard for me to part with it.  Do you have the same issue parting with fabrics you love?!

    I am purposely not singing THAT song … nope – not me! But I do love your quilt! It’ll be really nice once it’s quilted!

      Hi Gail,
      It is a catchy tune – it is running through my head now but I’m not singing it. Nope, not me either. HAHA! Happy New Year! ~smile~ Roseanne

    Sweet quilt! In answer to your question do you have trouble parting with fabric you love–oh yes, all the time and even with fabric that I don’t love. My stash theme is that I haven’t bought a fabric that I didn’t love. And I do have a stash of heart fabric too. Have fun partying and singing Love Shack!

      Hi Rose,
      You make a very good point! I don’t buy fabrics that I don’t like or love . . . I have to keep that in mind – that’s why I buy it! Fortunately the radio is sharing some other songs right now, so I can get that addictive song out of my head. ~smile~ Roseanne

    I thought you were going to sew it with some black like in the first picture, so I was surprised to see it in just red and white. But it was a nice surprise!

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Shannon,
      The black in the first picture is actually my kitchen island peeking through! That’s what we use to audition quilt pieces so we can move them around easily. Every time we walk past something gets moved, and sometimes visitors get involved too. ~smile~ Roseanne

  7. I love your ‘love shack’ quilt. It will be so pretty with the joined hearts. Maybe it will be ready in time for Valentine Day.

    A simple design that lets the fabric shine, nothing wrong with that!

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Vicki,
      Unfortunately it has not progressed any further than the quilt top. It’s not even layered! Maybe that may change this weekend, but that looks rather doubtful since we have three parties to go to. I love this time of year but it’s not so great for sewing. ~smile~ Roseanne
