Happy Valentines Day quilt

I can't tell you how long it's been since I've had this kit.  I know I bought it on clearance at least 2 years ago.
It's already hanging in my bedroom.  It's supposed to have heart buttons but the buttons they gave me are more on the burgundy side instead of red and I didn't really like them.  So I am leaving it like this.  That is ric-rac going through the blocks.  And I used only the blocks with dogs in them except one that has cookie in it.  That's in honor of my mom.

I also finished this little one.
It's for my grand niece but it will stay at her grandma's house because her mommy said quilting just 'wasn't her thing'.   So I asked my sister if she wanted a quilt at her house for when her grandkids visit and she said yes.  I already had the hexagons all cut and ready so I wanted to make it and get it out of my stash.

I have 4 more quilts pinned and ready to go.  Just need some inspiration.

Also during the Superbowl party my friend had (all quilting ladies quilting all day) I finished another block of my applique block of the year.  It's called that because it takes me about a year to finish one block.  The gingerbread men will eventually have button eyes.

Thanks for looking.

Good job on two finishes. Grandma will love having a quilt at her house.
You better be careful, you just might finish two blocks this year.

Great idea to give it to your sister. It will probably get used and loved much more. It's such a cute I Spy quilt. How did you manage two finished in a week? lol I'm thrilled to get one every couple of weeks.
You made a great deal on the quilt kit. It's adorable and you saved money!
