Happy Valentine's Day

So this year instead of making 50 Valentine fiber cards, I decided to take a tip from my friend, Mary A., back in Michigan!  I turned Betty Boop into a postcard!  Yes, it was cheating but gave me a year off  and refreshed my brain for next year!

I made Betty back in 2011 (you can read about her here).  At the time, we had a yearly exhibit called Michigan Quilt Artist Invitational and that year's theme was Art of the Kitchen.  I found a coloring page of Betty and thought it was perfect!   Yep, there is beading on this piece (post link above shows closeup). 

I  gave this quilt to one of my Florida buds, Betty, who I met at the Warped Weaver's group we were both in.  Betty is a Betty Boop fan and has been called Betty Boop from time to time.  so I'm glad my Betty has a good home with Betty!

And Happy Valentine's Day to you all! 


  1. Your postcard idea was clever and a very sweet expression of the day!

  2. This is a great idea, and the whole piece has so much detail to study. The beaded hearts are perfect and woven background so eye-catching. Glad that Betty got a ride through the mail for Valentine's Day! Oh, did you see who won Best of Show at the Westminster Dog Show?
