We quilters show our love by making quilts for people both near and far, so we don’t particularly need a special day set aside to remind us to celebrate amoré. But it certainly doesn’t hurt to have it, and besides, Valentine’s Day gives us a whole set of motifs, shapes, and colors to use in our designs. Win-win!
Perhaps you’re looking for Valentine’s gift ideas for quilters to let one in your life (or even in your home) know how loved they are. Well keep reading: we compiled some staff favorites that are sure to keep your quilter in the pink!
Replenish your supply of Valentine’s Day-ready fabric with a pack of pink prints. You’ll get 12 assorted pink fat quarters in varying shades and patterns, perfect for making small gifts and scrap quilts alike.
You’ll be happy you have that fabric on hand when you open up your first issue of McCall’s Quilting, Quiltmaker, Fons & Porter’s Love of Quilting, Quilting Arts, or any of our other fabulous quilting magazine titles and see all of the great patterns we have in store for you. Whether you’re looking for a quick-and-easy project or a more challenging quilt to make, you’ll find untold inspiration in our pages. And if you’re looking for a Valentine’s gift for a quilter in your life, a subscription is a great way to remind your special someone of your love throughout the year.
Another terrific Valentine’s gift for quilters that gives all year round is the Template of the Month Club. This club features acrylic quilt templates designed by the expert staff here at Fons & Porter. With these templates, you’ll be able to use your rotary cutter to make shapes that would have previously required tracing around a template and cutting with scissors! That’s more time piecing together your quilt top and less time fussing with scrap paper — all thanks to these quilting templates!
Classic yet contemporary, red and white is one of the most iconic color combinations in quilting, inspiring designers, collectors, and major exhibits. In Red & White Quilting, award-winning quilter Linda Pumphrey celebrates this popular pairing with 40 pieced and appliquéd blocks that can be mixed and matched to create eye-catching quilts, pillows, runners, and more! Available in softcover and eBook editions.
Drink a toast to your favorite hobby with this etched-glass wine glass by Quilt Happy™, designed especially for our friends at Keepsake Quilting. Holds 21 oz. (to the brim) of your favorite red, white or rose in a stemless glass, reducing the possibility of spilling any vino on your project as you work (don’t worry, we don’t judge).
In this celebration of Tone Finnanger’s love of fabric, you’ll find over 20 beautiful sewing, patchwork, applique and quilting projects from the creator of Tilda designs that will bring color and fun to your home, including quilts, pillows, pincushions, stockings, toys and accessories. Available in softcover and eBook editions.
This high-quality, double-sided cutting mat has inch marks on one side and metric marks (570 x 420 mm) on the other, as well as 30-, 45- and 60-degree lines to make it easy to cut angles. And not only that, it’s pink! All the better to feel the love with every project you make no matter the season.
We’ve assembled a variety of Valentine’s Day projects, patterns, and gifts here, so be sure to take a look for even more heartfelt inspiration!
